Homeopathic Teething Tablets and Ear Relief Products Containing Belladonna Recalled

On November 24, 2016, Raritan Pharmaceuticals, a contract manufacturer for Homeolab USA, issued a recall of three homeopathic products for infants and/or children which contain belladonna extract. The products may contain belladonna alkaloids, compounds which can have harmful effects in people. Some of the products were also found to contain different amounts of belladonna than what was listed on labels.

The recalled products are:

  • CVS Homeopathic Infants' Teething Tablet 135 tablets, UPC: 050428424162, Lots: 41116 and 43436
  • Kids Relief Homeopathic Ear Relief Oral Liquid 0.85 fl. oz., UPC: 778159090639, Lot: 35254
  • CVS Homeopathic Kids' Ear Relief Liquid 0.85 fl. oz., UPC: 050428441633, Lot: 33149

Consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately.

No other Homeolab or Raritan products are affected.

In September 2016 the FDA warned consumers it had received reports of adverse events, including seizures, associated with the use of homeopathic teething tablets and gels, although it did not provide the brand names of the products.
