The company, Standard Homeopathic, said it was recalling the tablets at the request of the Food and Drug Administration, which had concluded that they contained inconsistent amounts of belladonna, an herb known colloquially as "deadly nightshade".

Hyland's teething tablets are being recalled nationwide due to inconsistent levels of toxic belladonna, which USA regulators say makes them a serious health hazard to young children. Laboratory analysis showed that the amount of belladonna in the tablets sometimes exceeded the amount claimed on the product labeling. The recall includes all products that retailers may have in stock; the company stopped shipping product back in October 2016. This recall is to ensure that all products still on shelves are pulled. "We are committed to maintaining and earning the trust consumers have placed in Standard Homeopathic Company".
