In brief: Celandine

When given orally in material quantities, greater celandine has been implicated in more than a dozen cases of hepatitis.
This seems to depend on the dose. The time between use and the appearance of hepatitis varies. Topically, greater celandine can cause contact dermatitis. Homeopathic preparations of this herb do not cause these issues -- this would be the remedy named chelidonium.

Agree! Celandine recently appeared on Consumer Report's list of "ingredients to always avoid."
