    Theses stories do my head in. They all contain words like MAY and NOT confirmed....

    In this one:

    There have been no confirmed cases of Reye's Syndrome associated with Bonjela or Bonjela Cool, which remain safe and effective treatments for adults and children 16 years and over.

    and:

    As of April 16 this year, three suspected serious adverse drug reaction reports were received by the MHRA in association with the use of oral gels containing choline salicylate, including Bonjela.
    All three cases were in children and all ended up in hospital. However, Reye's syndrome was not confirmed in any child.

    Why bother making an article about it??!

    Also it says the baby bonjela isn't affected so that's fine :)

    Yeah I saw it on the news, they are referring to adult and not baby bongela. So I think we are fine.

    If you are worried then don't use it. I use Bonjela, calgel and teething powders. They powders are herbal so contain nothing harmful.
