FDA Warning for Teething Tablets

Re: Bestmade Teething Salts Bio21

There has been a warning from the FDA about Hylands Teething tablets(another company’s product). The problem is that the HYLANDS Teething tablets contain Belladonna. A plant that has some toxicity.

Our product is NOT similar and has completely different ingredients. In face, we only have one common ingredient which is Calc Phos (Calcium).

(here is a link to the FDA warning that explains the concerns about Belladonna in a product formulated for small children) http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm230762.htm

Bestmade Teething salts are a completely different product from Hylands Teething Tablets. Our formula contains NO toxic or dangerous herbs or plants.

Our ingredient list is very short:
TWO Mineral salts: Calc Phos, Ferr Phos, crushed into a Lactose sugar pellet. (The lactose is milk sugar, and is just used as a base for the mineral salts)

(from Wikipedia)

Calcium phosphate (Calc Phos)

is the name given to a family of minerals containing calcium ions (Ca2+) together with orthophosphates (PO43−), metaphosphates or pyrophosphates (P2O74−) and occasionally hydrogen or hydroxide ions.[1]

Calcium phosphate is the principal form of calcium found in bovine milk and blood. Seventy percent of bone consists of hydroxyapatite, a calcium phosphate mineral (known as bone mineral). Tooth enamel is composed of almost ninety percent hydroxyapatite.

(Ferr Phos) is Iron Sulphate: Iron and phosphate ions are found in many foods naturally. Iron phosphate is used to fortify foods such as bread. Other foods, such as pasta, milk, and beverages, are also fortified with forms of iron. Iron phosphate is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA)

Two key points:
1: Our component ingredients are safe.
2: Our particular formula has been in use for 200+ years with no safety issues.

These are the ingredients in the Hylands Baby Teething tablets. And there is an FDA warning about THIS line of products which is unrelated to the BESTMADE product line.
