All remaining Hyland’s homeopathic teething tablets are now being removed from store shelves under a major recall, according to CNN.
Two types of the teething products, previously linked to the deaths of 10 children, have been recalled, the Food and Drug Administration announced on April 13.
Standard Homeopathic Company, the Los Angeles-based maker of Hyland’s homeopathic teething products, recalled all of its teething tablets and nighttime teething tablets, the announcement said. The FDA concluded that the products have mislabeled the amounts of belladonna alkaloids they contain.
After the FDA warned parents against using homeopathic teething tablets and gels last year, the company announced in October that it would stop distributing the products in the United States.
In January, the FDA urged parents not to use Hyland’s homeopathic teething products after finding that the products contain varying amounts of belladonna, a toxic substance, commonly known as deadly nightshade, that can be harmful to children.
Ten deaths and other adverse events, such as seizures and vomiting, previously were reported to the FDA and the agency investigated those reports last year.
As part of the recall, parents are encouraged to throw away any teething products they may still have.
This isn’t the first time that Hyland’s teething tablets have been recalled. In 2010, Standard Homeopathic voluntarily recalled the tablets to address concerns with the product’s manufacturing process and refine its production, packaging and testing protocols.
At the time, adverse events were reported, but the FDA said that it could not confirm a conclusive link between the events and the teething products.
