On November 20, 2014, the FDA issued a warning letter to Long Island Pharmaceuticals, LLC, following a facility inspection which found the company's products to be adulterated because they were prepared, packed, or held under conditions that violate Current Good Manufacturing Practices for dietary supplements.

These violations include failure to verify that finished batches of dietary supplements meet product specifications for identity, purity, strength, and failure to implement quality control operations in your manufacturing, packaging, labeling, and holding operations.

The adulterated products include yohimbe extract, maca root extract, epimedium (horney goat extract), Tribulus terrestris, Avena sativa extract, ginseng, zinc, vitamin B6, pumpkin seed extract, quercetin, stinging nettle, Pygeum Africana extract, grape seed extract, MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane), selenium (amino acid chelate), silicon dioxide, saw palmetto berry extract, calcium, citrus bioflavonoid complex with hesperidin, rose hips powder, Acerola powder and rutin.
