Recall of Sexual Enhancement Supplements Containing Drug

On July 28, 2008 the U.S. FDA announced that Jack Distribution, LLC and G & N works, Inc. are conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of all lot numbers of the company's supplement products sold under the brand names Rize 2 The Occasion and Rose 4 Her. New lots of Rize 2 and Rose 4 her (not subject to this recall) will contain lot numbers beginning in "BL".

Jack Distribution, LLC, is conducting this recall after being informed by representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that lab analysis by FDA of Rize 2 and Rose 4 Her samples of random lots found the product contains potentially harmful, undeclared ingredients. FDA asserts that its chemical analysis revealed that Rize 2 The Occasion and Rose 4 Her contain thiomethisosildenafil, an analog of sildenafil, the active ingredient of a FDA-approved drug used for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). FDA maintains that this ingredient is close in structure to sildenafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. This undeclared chemical poses a potential threat to consumers because it may 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 nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.

Customers who have this product in their possession should stop using it immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking this product.

Any adverse events that may be related to the use of this product should be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Program by phone at 1-800-FDA-1088 or by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178 or by mail at MedWatch, HF-2, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787.

The company advises that any unused portions can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund of purchase price. Jack Distribution will manufacture new lots of these products which are not subject to the recall. Those lot numbers will begin with "BL" and will begin to be sold shortly.

Rize 2 and Rose 4 Her are sold in adult stores, vitamin & nutrition shops, convenience stores, and via the internet nationwide. The Rize 2 product is sold as a (single blister pack, three count bottles, twelve count bottles, and thirty count bottles. Rose 4 Her is only available in single blister packs and three count bottles.
