3 types of children’s medicine have been recalled by Raritan Pharmaceuticals due to unsafe levels of a key ingredient. Too much of this key ingredient, Belladonna, is dangerous and potentially deadly.par-0

The affected medicines are:par-1

  • CVS Kids Relief Homeopathic Ear Relief Oral Liquid
  • CVS Homeopathic Infants’ Teething Tablets
  • CVS Homeopathic Kids’ Ear Relief Liquid

Raritan discovered a higher than recommended level of the ingredient Belladonna which is commonly known as nightshade. Belladonna is sometimes found in homeopathic or pharmaceutical products. In large doses, it can be toxic.par-2

A child may experience seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, and sleepiness if affected by Belladonna poisoning.par-3

Sushant Pradhan, a Raritan Pharmaceuticals representative said “The recall is a precautionary action,” said. He claimed that the recalled products only contain about a nanogram of belladonna, which “isn’t toxic to anybody.” Raritan said he hasn’t yet seen the recent tests from the FDA, hence the recall.par-4

Last year the FDA issued a warning that parents take caution in giving homeopathic teething tablets and gels to infants and children. CVS was one of the brands considered in this warning as well as Hyland’s, and others, all of which are sold in retail stores and online.par-5

This goes without saying – If you have any of the medicines listed above, stop use immediately. Should your child be exposed to it and experiences any of these symptoms, seek medical attention right away.par-6
