Teething medicine Warning for Parents from the FDA

Based on the recent warning from the FDA I wanted to let my parents Know whats going on.


The FDA has issued a warning for parents in the use of teething remedy  deemed unsafe for use and wants them to be taken off shelf’s immediately.

The reason these remedies  are unsafe it’s because they contain an ingredient called Benzocaine that can cause a rare and deadly effects on your young child,  as well as a blood condition. This blood condition is linked to potential breathing problems that can cause death.
