What’s the problem?
May 2, 2017 – Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets have been pulled from shelves in Australia after being linked to 400 ‘adverse events’ in the U.S. last year, including the deaths of 10 children, according to an FDA Safety Alert issued in November.
The TGA in Australia issued a recall notice Saturday in conjunction with distributor Kadac, claiming the tablets are “unpredictable and could cause serious health problems” in babies and infants.
The action comes after at least 5 cases involving babies treated with Hyland Teething Tablets were filed with the agency.
“Kadac is now recalling the tablets in Australia as a precautionary measure due to the potential safety risk that belladonna alkaloids can pose to children,” a company spokesperson said. “Kadac has decided that all Hyland’s baby teething products, including the gel, will no longer be marketed in Australia.”
The teething tablets were widely available in Australia at children’s hospitals, Terry White chemists and Priceline pharmacies.
The Australian Hyland’s teething tablets recall is being conducted in response to the FDA investigation. While TGA has tested Hyland’s products, it has found no quality issues to date.
The action has been classified as a “precautionary measure,” as the “effects of belladonna can be unpredictable and could cause serious health problems.”
