Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following drugs are subject to this recall:

  • Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets, sold to provide temporary relief of teething symptoms in children.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the drug’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Please note this photograph has been taken from the recall notification posted on this site from the US FDA concerning the drug product sold into the American market as there was no artwork supplied for the Australian recall. This mean, therefore, the Australian packaging may differ from the US packaging and should be taken as a guide only.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, APNs or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the ACCC, there is no known safe dose or toxic dose of Belladonna in children because of the many factors that affect it. The ACCC, therefore, believes that Belladonna represents a serious health hazard to children and that the effects of Belladonna are unpredictable.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled drugs, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another medicinal preparation. Instead, return the drugs to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
