In December, the FDA warned the public against using dozens of male enhancement and weight loss products after an agency review found that contained ingredients which weren’t on the label . Some of those ingredients, like prescription-only sildenafil and tadalafil for erectile dysfunction and the long-banned sibutramine for weight loss, pose dangers to those with heart and heart-related difficulties .
Sibutramine was banned in 2010 for the risk it levied on the cardiovascular system
In the last few days, a number of those male enhancement product manufacturers and distributors that were caught up in the FDA’s pre-Christmas buying spree — the agency bought the goods on Amazon and eBay — have started issuing their own recalls. Since March 5, the FDA has issued warnings regarding 9 products and their hidden ingredients. Some, like those from Imperial Extreme, have both sildenafil and tadalafil in them, according to the agency.
The FDA is warning consumers, particularly those who use medicines containing nitrates, not to take these products because of the significant health risk. They’re advising anyone with the goods to ruin them. You’ll find the list of products given warnings here.
Those companies issuing nationally 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.
