Capsule for Men Spiked with Erectile Drug

On April 7, 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted consumers of a recall of Stud Capsule for Men [Lot #060607-01/060108-01, Exp 6-2013] by its distributor, Kanec USA after FDA informed Kanec that laboratory analysis of a sample found the product to be adulterated with sildenafil, an FDA approved drug for erectile dysfunction.

Use of this product may pose a threat to consumers because the analogue 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.

The products are sold as a blister pack containing one capsule per unit of use 24-packs in a Box. Lot number and expiration date appears on the seal. Consumers who have this recalled product in their possession should stop using them immediately.
