US warning relates to baby teething gels and tablets sold in Australia

There are claims baby teething gels and tablets, that may be linked to the deaths of children in the US, are still being sold in Australia.

The US Food and Drug Agency issued a warning about a number of products, including gels and tablets made by Hyland’s, according to Nine News.

These products are sold at a variety of shops including Chemist Warehouse.


The Daily Mail reports US Food and Drug Administration claims ten children died after using homeopathic teething treatments.

The report comes a week after the FDA revealed it had concerns about ‘adverse affects’ caused by homeopathic teething tablets.

A spokesman for Hyland’s told Daily Mail Online the advisory was a surprise, and they are still not clear what grounds the agency has for its warning against homeopathy.
