FDA Recall List: Baby Products

This just in from the Food and Drug Administration:

After the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves a product and it is on
the market, FDA continues to monitor unexpected and undesirable side effects
(adverse events) of that product.
Health care professionals and consumers may
report side effects, product quality problems, product use errors, or
therapeutic failure with the use of medical products to FDA's MedWatch Adverse
Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail, by fax, or by phone.

  • Online
  • Regular Mail: Use postage-paid FDA
    form 3500
    and mail to MedWatch, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD
  • Fax: 1-800-FDA-0178
  • Phone: 1-800-332-1088

MedWatch reports can signal a safety problem and lead to an FDA action to
protect the public from harm, serious illness, or even death.

The teethers were sold through retail stores nationwide and also on the
Internet. They are packaged in a plastic bubble on a printed card.

The risk: The bacteria (Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus
circulans) that have been found on the teethers can cause stomach pain,
vomiting, and diarrhea in children with weakened immune systems if the teether
is punctured and the liquid from the teether is swallowed.


  • Stop using the teethers immediately.
  • Throw the teethers out or return them to the store where you bought them for
    a refund.
