Children's Homeopathic Products Recalled
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Raritan Pharmaceuticals has issued a voluntary
recall of their homeopathic products containing belladonna extract. Raritan Pharmaceuticals
is a contract manufacturer for Homeolab USA. The recall stems from a potential
risk due to the variation in the content of belladonna extract in the
products. According to the U.S. FDA, testing revealed some products consisted
of various levels of belladonna extract. The content in the product differed
from what was actually declared on the label. The recalled products include
CVS Homeopathic Infants' Teething Tablets, 135 tablets, UPC: 050428424162;
Kids Relief Homeopathic Ear Relief Oral Liquid 0.85 fl. oz. Lot: 35254
UPC: 778159090639; and CVS Homeopathic Kids' Ear Relief Liquid 0.85
fl. oz. Lot: 33149 UPC: 050428441633. CVS has already removed these products
from the shelves.
According to the FDA, these homeopathic products contain a very small amount
of belladonna. Belladonna is a substance that can be harmful when used
in a larger dose. The company has stated that the recall is voluntarily
and out of an abundance of caution. The company says the products were
distributed Nationwide. Consumers should stop using the recalled product
immediately. Consumers can contact Raritan Pharmaceuticals with questions
during regular business hours. Consumers who experience any problems with
their child who have used this product should contact their physician
or healthcare provider immediately. Consumers can get a full refund at
their place of purchase.
