Nature & Health announces voluntary, nationwide recall of five supplement products

7/16/2009

BREA, Calif. Nature & Health on Wednesday conducted a voluntary nationwide recall of the company’s five supplement products sold under the following names — LibieXtreme, Y-4ever, Libimax X Liquid, Powermania Liquid and Capsule and Herbal Disiac — after being informed by the Food and Drug Administration that lab analyses of these five products found they contained either tadalafil, an active ingredient of an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction; its analog aminotadalafil; or the analog of sidenafil, another active ingredient of an FDA-approved ED drug.

None of the active drug ingredients are listed on the product labels. 

The undeclared ingredients may interact with nitrates found in such prescription drugs as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates.

Additionally, the product may cause such side effects as headaches and flushing.

The recalled products were distributed in retail stores in California, Georgia, Illinois, Texas and Ohio.
