Recall of Virility Supplement

On May 29, 2008, the FDA posted a recall by International Pharmaceuticals, Ltd. of all of the company's supplement sold under the name of Viril-Ity-Power (VIP) Tabs, 560mg/serving. The company is conducting this recall after being informed by representatives of the FDA that lab analysis by FDA of a sample from one lot of the product revealed that it contained a potentially harmful undeclared ingredient, hydroxyhomosildenafil. FDA asserts that this ingredient is an analog of sildenafil. Sildenafil is the active chemical ingredient of an FDA-approved drug used for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in men to enhance sexual performance. The use of undeclared chemicals pose a threat to consumers because they may harmfully interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take such nitrates.
