Finally! A Recall on Hyland’s Homeopathic Teething Tablets | American Council on Science and Health

Last September, the FDA issued a news release cautioning that homeopathic teething tablets and gels may be harmful to babies and children, and issued a strong recommendation to not use them. This action was taken in response to reports of the teething products causing the illnesses of hundreds of infants and deaths of approximately ten babies. The move prompted some pharmacies to remove them from their shelves, which is great, except the bottles shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Pharmacies are not supposed to sell witchcraft.
