In December, the FDA warned the public against using dozens of products for enhancement and weight loss in men after an agency review found it contained any ingredient not listed on the label. Some of these ingredients, such as prescription-only sildenafil and tadalafil for erectile dysfunction and the long-banned sibutramine for weight loss, pose a risk to people with heart and heart problems.
Sibutramine was banned in 2010 because of the risk to the cardiovascular system
In the past few days, some of the male enhancement product manufacturers and distributors involved in the FDA’s pre-Christmas shopping spree – the agency bought the products on Amazon and eBay – have started issuing their own recalls. As of March 5th, the FDA has been warning of 9 products and their hidden ingredients. Some, like Imperial Extreme’s, contain both sildenafil and tadalafil, according to the agency.
The FDA warns consumers, especially those who use nitrate-containing drugs, not to take these products because of the serious health risk they pose. They advise anyone with the products to destroy them. You can find the list of products with warnings Here.
Companies that issue nationwide recalls for male enhancement products include Ummzy LLC for thumbs up 7 Red 70K, Shogun-X 15000mg, and Krazy Night supplements; and Nuri Trading LLC for Shogun-X 7000 thumbs up 7 (black) 25K, thumbs up 7 (white) 11K and 69MODE blue 69.
The FDA has issued about 160 such warnings since 2017.
