Recall of Two Supplements Spiked with Erectile Dysfunction Drug

On December 22, 2010 the U.S. FDA reported that RockHard laboratories is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of the company’s dietary supplements sold under the brand names RockHard Weekend and Pandora specific to the following Lot Numbers: RockHard Weekend Lot Numbers: 100159 and 100260 sold as blister packs, 3ct bottles and 8ct bottles; Pandora Lot Numbers: 100378 sold as blister packs.

RockHard Laboratories is conducting a voluntary recall after its independent testing found the RockHard Weekend and Pandora products, specific to the above lot numbers, contain an analogue of Sildenafil. Sildenafil is an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male Erectile Dysfunction (ED). The active drug ingredient is not listed on the label for these products.

Use of these products 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. For more information, use the link below.
