What’s the problem?
March 24, 2011 – This week, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that USA Far Ocean Group Inc., of Alhambra, CA will be recalling “U-Prosta Natural support for prostate health” after the drug was found to contain undeclared terazosin, the active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug used to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). Since terazosin was not originally declared as an ingredient in the drug, U-Prosta is now classified as an unapproved medication. The following products are included in this recall:
- U-Prosta Dietary Supplement – 30 capsules – UPC code 689076499255
- U-Prosta Dietary Supplement – 60 capsules – UPC code 88858100030
- U-Prosta Dietary Supplement – 1 capsule – no UPC code
The most likely side effects that could occur with the use of this product include (but are not limited to):
- hypotension (low blood pressure)
- syncope (fainting)
Patients who are currently being treated with prescription medications for high blood pressure or enlarged prostate are at an increased risk of these side effects. Consumers in possession of the affected product are urged to stop usage and return it to the place of purchase. Individuals experiencing any of the above side effects should consult their healthcare professional immediately.
