Update: FDA Cites Teething Tablet Manufacturer for GMP Violations
June 27, 2017 – An FDA warning letter sent Tuesday to Raritan Pharmaceuticals — the New Jersey CMO that manufactured Hyland’s Teething Tablets — cited the company for numerous violations ranging from misbranding to inadequate quality testing and procedures. The agency slammed Raritan for failing to test the quality of its ingredients and not having manufacturing processes in place that would ensure consistent ingredient levels.
Hyland’s Teething Tablets: Recall – Risk of Harm to Children
October 25, 2010 – The FDA recently notified consumers that Hyland’s Teething Tablets are being recalled because they may pose a risk to children. The tablets are manufactured to contain a small amount of belladonna, a substance that can cause serious harm at larger doses. For such a product, it is important that the amount of belladonna be carefully controlled. FDA laboratory analysis has found that Hyland’s Teething Tablets contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna.
FDA has received reports of serious adverse events in children taking this product that are consistent with belladonna toxicity. The FDA has also received reports of children who consumed more tablets than recommended, because the containers do not have child resistant caps.
FDA advises consumers to consult their health care professional if their child experiences symptoms such as:
- difficulty breathing
- excessive sleepiness
- muscle weakness
- skin flushing
