A Product That Has Been Linked To Many Baby Deaths Recalled

Teething tablets that are currently being investigated over baby deaths in America are now being recalled in Australia.

There are fears that the tablets contain toxic plants belladonna.

A Therapeutic Goods Administration bulletin advised that Hyland’s baby teething tablets and baby night-time teething tablets should be returned to their place of purchase immediately.

“While the TGA had tested samples of these products supplied in Australia and found no quality issues, Kadac is now recalling the tablets as a precautionary measure due to the potential safety risk that belladonna alkaloids can pose to children,” it stated.

“The effects of belladonna can be unpredictable and could cause serious health problems.”

The Australian recall comes just two weeks after the product was recalled by its United States distributor.

If you have any Hyland’s Baby teething tablets, return them to the place of purchase for a refund or call Kadac on 1300 762 025.
