The FDA has detected a potentially toxic substance in Hyland's Teething Tablets and urges consumers to discard them, according to a statement.

The FDA says it has received reports of "serious adverse effects" in children and found the tablets contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna, a substance that can cause harm in larger doses. The company maintains that the tablets are safe, but are recalling them as a precaution.

Excess use of Belladonna could potentially bring breathlessness, tiredness, weakness and constipation and the FDA has advised parents to be cautious and not give it to children.

Hyland's as well as the FDA, advised parents to throw away or discard any of the product they may currently have in their home and contact the company for safe replacements.
