Hyland's Teething Tablets Recall Information - Page 2
Is there a report on this? I would love to read it.
from what I understand, you can get botulism from the environment too, so they would have had to test her tablets to know this was the source. I am very interested in reading a report on this.
This speculation was brought to our attention. Following our protocol, we immediately sent out to an independent lab to test the retained finished goods products as well as the raw materials used for Hyland's Teething Tablets. All tests of Hyland’s Teething Tablets and raw ingredients came back negative for Chlostridium botulinum, the organism responsible for botulism.
i must be totally dense cuz i cant quite understand why they got recalled, can someone help me out?

Whats the difference between the tablets and the gel? DS is teething really badly right now so I tried to find the tablets, but I couldn't find them, and ended up getting the gel. DS hates it though I have to trick him into taking it. Does the gel have to be applied to the gums or should it work the same if its swallowed in something?
Hyland's Teething Gel has the same active ingredients as the Teething Tablets, in a topical dosage form. The gel should be applied directly to the baby's gums but it should work the same if ingested.
A second difference between the gel and the tablets is that the active ingredients in the gel are of higher homeopathic potency: this increases the strength and safety margin of the medicine.
I had chosen the Tablets over the gel when my son started teething a year ago.
I was concerned because the gel listed parabens in the ingredients.
He is pushing molars now, and we are about to run out of tablets
my husband tried to get us more but we were too late.
If it's the belladonna that's helping him, you can buy just that. Though I wouldn't know how to doseage it for a little one. I know Boiron sells some.
