Hylands Teething Tablet Lawsuit 2017 Filed Alleging Belladonna Side Effects

Hylands teething tablet lawsuit 2017 filed alleging belladonna side effects

On April 21, 2017, Hylands Teething Tablet Lawsuit 2017 was filed by TorHoerman Law against Hyland’s Inc and Standard Homeopathic Laboratories on behalf of two victims of belladonna side effects – Bryan Morales II and Delyla Sanchez. Sadly, Delyla passed away and like many others, Delyla’s family is looking for answers.

Belladonna Side Effects

Belladonna is a toxic and poisonous plant that has been used as a poison since Roman times.

Belladonna causes toxic responses in the body including dry mouth, enlarged pupils, blurred vision, red dry skin, fever, fast heartbeat, inability to urinate or sweat, hallucinations, spasms, mental problems, convulsions and coma.

Belladonna can also aggravate congestive heart failure, constipation, down syndrome, esophageal reflux, fever, stomach ulcers, gastrointestinal tract infections, gastrointestinal tract blockages, hiatal hernia, high blood pressure, narrow-angle glaucoma, psychiatric disorders, rapid heartbeat, ulcerative colitis and urinary retention.

Public Not Warned of Belladonna Side Effects

The lawsuit alleges that Hyland’s teething products caused the belladonna side effects that caused injury and death to the infants. Adverse Event data collected by the FDA establishes that the teething products were inherently unsafe, and that Hylands was aware of the dangerous nature of these products as early as 2010. The lawsuit alleges that Hylands disregarded known belladonna side effects rand continued to sell these products without informing or warning the public, including the families of Bryan and Delyla.

Hyland’s Teething Tablets Lawsuit 2017

Hylands Teething Tablet Lawsuit 2017 contains eleven causes of action including design defect, inadequate warning, manufacturing defect, negligence, negligence misrepresentation, fraud misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, express warranty, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, wrongful death and survival

Hyland’s Teething Tablets Lawsuit 2017 – Design Defect and Inadequate Warning

According to the lawsuit, the teething products used by Sanchez and Morales were in a condition unreasonably dangerous at the time they left Hyland’s manufacturing. Plaintiffs allege that the families of Sanchez and Morales used the teething products in a manner that was reasonably forseeable to Hylands and the unreasonably dangerous condition of the teething products was the cause of the injuries.

At the time Sanchez and Morales used the teething products, the lawsuit alleges that Hylands knew of the potential risks and toxic effects of the teething products, but, failed to adequately warn of these risks. Furthermore, Hyland’s teething tablets and gel label failed to provide adequate directions on how to use the products.

Prior to recall, the Hyland’s Teething Tablet label read:

to further clarify the homeopathic dosages of Belladonna in Baby Teething Tablets, a 10-pound child would have to accidentally ingest, all at the same time, more than a dozen bottles of 135 Baby Teething Tablets before experiencing even dry mouth from the product.

And the Hyland’s Teething Tablet Gel Read:

to further clarify the homeopathic dosages of Belladonna in Baby Teething Tablets, a 10-pound child would have to accidentally ingest, all at the same time, more than a dozen bottles of 135 Baby Teething Tablets before experiencing even dry mouth from the product.

Hyland’s Teething Tablets Lawsuit 2017 – Manufacturing Defect and Negligence

Hylands designed, distributed, manufactured, marketed and sold their natural remedy teething tablets such that they were dangerous, unsafe and defective in manufacture. Furthermore, Hylands had a duty to exercise reasonable and prudent care in the development, testing, design, manufacture, inspection, marketing, labeling, promotion, distribution and sale of the teething products and they knew or should have known that the teething tablets were dangerous.

Hyland’s Teething Tablets Lawsuit 2017 – Negligent and Fraudulent Misrepresentation, Fraudulent Concealment

Prior to the time the Sanchez and Morales families used the teething tablets, Hyland’s represented to the general public that these natural remedy teething products were safe and effective for use. Hylands made these representations both negligently and intentionally (fraudulently).   Furthermore, after learning of toxic responses to the teething tablets, Hylands concealed this information and continued to assure the public that the product was safe.
