Here's a recall of a medicine that could put your baby in harm's way.

The FDA says that Hyland Teething Tablets, for teething babies, may pose a risk for children. It contains Belladonna, a substance that can be harmful in larger doses. The FDA says it received reports of "serious adverse effects" in children caused by the tablets.

The product is believed to be safe, but as a precaution, is still being recalled. Details about the recall are available at: www.hylandsteething.com/recall or 1-877-496-5044.

    people it may not say it on this site but on the others it clearly states that the bottle does not have a child safety cap on it so children might be able to get into it and eat them. how about you dont judge other mothers until you have read everything. if the company that made the tablets would have been just a tiny but smarter and put a child safety cap on the bottle then you would be right but your not.

    This is just wonderful. This effect the parents that follow the directions. My child does just fine on the correct doses and I would have never thought of giving her the wrong amounts. Some parents just dont seem to amaze me anymore.

    Yet another wonderful medication recalled, no doubt because of some irresponsible parent who thought "gee, it works so well, maybe if I give my child twice as much, it will work twice as well!" Duh.
