Warning On Homoeopathic Teething Tablets

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control has been informed that the Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA), on 11th October 2017, disclosed that it had received a direct foreign drug alert from Australia’s Therapeutic Good’s Administration (TGA), informing it that Kadac, Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of organic, natural and health products, was recalling all batches of Hyland’s Baby teething tablets and Hyland’s Baby night time teething tablets following an investigation which revealed that the product contains inconsistent amount of belladonna alkaloids, a toxic substance which poses potential safety risk to children.

Hyland’s homeopathic teething tablets are complimentary medicines marketed to provide temporary relief of teething symptoms in children. Consumers should stop using the product immediately and return unused portions to the nearest NAFDAC office for disposal.

NAFDAC implores consumers and all outlets with these products to immediately stop theiruse, sale and distribution and submit them to the nearest NAFDAC office for appropriate action.
