FDA Probes Possible Link Between Teething Products, Infant Deaths

Ten infant deaths that may linked to homeopathic teething gels and tablets are being investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The agency also said it has received reports of seizures, breathing problems, muscle weakness, agitation, excessive sleepiness and lethargy after infants were given the teething products, The New York Times reported.

Last month, the FDA warned parents to stop using the products made or distributed by CVS, Hyland's Homeopathic and other companies. The FDA does not have the power to recall homeopathic teething products, according to agency spokeswoman Lyndsay Meyer.

But "sometimes after further analysis, the adverse events may inform agency decisions to take regulatory action," she told The Times.
