I wouldn't use it, but only because it was recalled/pulled from the market for causing irreversible loss of smell in some patients.

I use it... my naturopath said it was safe, but it's good to Hale's says so too

As for it being recalled, only the nasel one's were, we use the mouth melts ones. I don't like things in my nose anyway.
