Seven Sexual Enhancement Supplements Recalled Due to Undeclared Drugs

On March 27, 2014, Nova Products, Inc. issued a voluntary recall of sexual enhancement supplements African Black Ant, Black Ant, XZen Gold, ZXen Platinum, XZen 1200, XZone Gold and XZone 1200. These supplements were found to contain undeclared amounts of sildenafil and tadalafil, active ingredients in prescriptions drugs for erectile dysfunction.

Sildenafil, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra, and tadalafil, the active ingredient in the prescription drug Cialis, are typically prescribed for erectile dysfunction. These drugs can cause symptoms like headache and flushing, and can interact with medications containing nitrates such as nitroglycerine, resulting in dangerously low blood pressure.

The recalled supplements are packaged in blister packs, envelopes, bottles, and/or boxes and were sold in retail stores nationwide. They can be identified by the following lot numbers:

  • African Black Ant, Lot# 2006-000926
  • Black Ant, Lot# 2006-3627878
  • Zen Gold, Lot# 130310GL
  • ZXen Platinum, Lot# 130520PL
  • XZen 1200, Lot# 13051012
  • XZone Gold, Lot# 131110GL
  • XZone 1200, Lot# 13071012

Consumers who have purchased these supplements should discontinue use immediately and contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any adverse side effects. Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
