'Unnecessary risk': FDA says homeopathic teething product is toxic, company won't recall

Romper reached out to the product's manufacturer, Standard Homeopathic Company in Los Angeles, and is awaiting a response. All Hyland's products related to teething rings or other teething products should be avoided for the safety of the babies.

Federal officials first warned against Hyland's tablets in 2010, and the company discontinued the products in October, Reuters reported.

"Laboratory analysis found inconsistent amounts of belladonna, a toxic substance, in certain homeopathic teething tablets, sometimes far exceeding the amount claimed on the label", the FDA said in a statement.

In Last Hours, Obama Approved Funds for Palestinian Authority
The aides and the State Department official weren't authorized to speak publicly on the matter and demanded anonymity. It is meant to provide assistance for reform in the territories for any future Palestinian state.

It was revealed by them that high amounts of toxic ingredients were included within homeopathic teething products. In some cases, the tablets contained a lot more belladonna than the label indicated, the agency said.

Earlier in September 2016, the FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, had warned against the use of these tablets after it received dozens of reports about adverse events, including seizures and some infant deaths.

Lyndsay Meyer, a spokeswoman for the FDA said that most of the reports describe serious effects like seizures.

Now, though, Manny Pacquiao is throwing his name into the mix as a potential headline boxing opponent for McGregor. Mayweather would consider the fight if White's company offers a guarantee of $100 million.

The FDA also points out that the agency has not approved homeopathic teething products. "We continue to request any available information and statistics from the FDA".

"They showed some limited data on samples they tested that indicated inconsistent amounts of belladonna alkaloid at the nanogram level", Borneman said.

Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research said that they "recommend that parents and caregivers not give these homeopathic teething tablets to children and seek advice from their health care professional for safe alternatives". The FDA recommends that consumers stop using these products marketed by Hyland's immediately and dispose of any in their possession. That followed another report of a child who had seizure after using the teething tablets.
