Nationwide Recall of Sexual Enhancement Supplements Containing Drug-like Compound

On December 14, 2009, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) posted a notice on its website regarding the recall of many sexual enhancement supplements sold by Atlas Operations, Inc. The products are being recalled by Atlas after it was informed by the FDA that lab analyses found batches of the products to contain Sulfoaildenafil, an analogue of Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male Erectile Dysfunction (ED) making these products an unapproved drug. The active drug ingredient is not listed on the product label.

Over twenty different products are affected by the recall.

The undeclared ingredient may pose a threat to the consumer because the interaction of the analogue with some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take other prescription drugs. Erectile Dysfunction is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.

Atlas is urging consumers who have purchased these products to discontinue their use and return to their place of purchase or directly to Atlas Operations.
