Teething Tablet Recall
Radiance has removed all products from the shelves.

The Following is an excerpt from the Hyland’s Press Release, for the entire article go to:

Contact: Mary C. Borneman:
Hyland’s Inc.,

Working with FDA, Standard Homeopathic Company Voluntarily
Recalls Hyland’s Teething Tablets to Address Manufacturing Process

Los Angeles, October 23, 2010 – Standard Homeopathic Company, in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is voluntarily recalling its Hyland’s Teething Tablets. The company is initiating this recall in an abundance of caution due to an FDA investigation of its manufacturing facility. Hyland’s Teething Tablets are manufactured in the United States and distributed throughout North America.
The Hyland’s Teething Tablets UPC codes included in the recall are:

1. Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 125 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75041
2. Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 250 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75042
3. Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 125 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75066
4. Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 50 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75044
5. Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 145 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75121
6. Hyland’s Teething Tablets, Clip Strip 6x125 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 35109

Adverse events have been reported but the FDA has said that a conclusive link has not been determined. The company, in working with the FDA, has identified manufacturing processes of Teething Tablets that can be improved to ensure uniformity in dosage. As a homeopathic product, Hyland’s Teething Tablets have a wide margin of safety that protects consumers from harm.

Staff Pick of the Week

Lina Parrish, our Herb Team Leader, has selected our ceremonial grade, Japanese-certified organic AOI Matcha Premium Green Tea as her favorite product.

"Matcha is an ancient powdered tea used in tea ceremonies in Japan.  Because the young leaves are picked and lightly steamed before being dried and ground to a fine powder, Matcha retains a vibrant green color and many healthful nutrients," says Lina.  "To brew the tea one mixes the powder with hot water and then consumes the whole plant, thereby increasing antioxidant consumption.  It has a smooth, slightly sweet flavor and brews up as a bright green cup of vitality. The powder can also be added to smoothies, baked goods or other foods.  It is a delicious and healthy addition to any routine.  I highly recommend it!"

Angel Baby Bottom Balm

20% off for the month of October
"Your new angel's skin – is anything softer? Is anything sweeter? Hey! What's that crud, and that rash, and those scrapes? Being a baby is a hard business, from diaper rash to cradle cap to tiny fingernail scratches, and then bangs and scrapes galore as they begin to explore. Clinically tested Angel Baby® Bottom Balm has got her back, his bottom, mama's dry skin, papa's razor burn and gazillions of other owies that come your family's way.

Our #1 best-selling salve is clinically tested, safe for cloth diapers, and safely battles existing diaper rash and protects against flare ups. The only balm made with organic olive oil infused with a proprietary blend of naturally antibacterial and antifungal organic herbs, shea butter and pure essential oils, soothes itchy cradle cap, bug bites, scrapes, chicken pox, minor rashes, and burns.

Allergy tested, non-irritating Angel Baby® Bottom Balm is vegan (no beeswax!) and works great for all your diapering needs, and especially well with all kinds of cloth diapers."

Staff Pick of the Week

This week's "Pick of the Week" is Fred Soll® Incense, selected by Judy Scott, our retail manager. 

Judy says, "It is the most amazing incense I have ever used and is well worth the price. It is still hand made by Fred himself.  The amber incense is so sticky with resin that your hands will be fragrant just taking it out of the package.  I can burn a third of a stick to perfume my whole house.  My faves are the vanilla, the red sandalwood and especially the amber."

Fred Soll® uses only all-natural ingredients to produce his high-quality incense products.  Made with all-natural resin, Fred Soll® incense is handmade, hand dipped, and dried in the New Mexico Sun.
