What’s the problem?
March 30, 2011 – This week, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that USA Far Ocean Group Inc. of Alhambra, CA will be recalling two supplement products sold under the names X-Hero and Male Enhancer after they were found to contain undeclared ingredients that have the potential to cause dangerous interactions in certain individuals. Products named in this recall include:
- X-Hero with English Label (10 capsules) UPC Code: 689087070995
- X-Hero with English Label (8 capsules) UPC Code: 689076499255
- X-Hero with Chinese/English Label (8 capsules) UPC Code: 689076499255
- X-Hero with English Label (1 capsule pack) UPC Code: None
- Male Enhancer (60 capsules) UPC Code: 982010061205
Lab tests confirmed that X-Hero contains sulfoaildenafil while Male Enhancer was found to contain tadalafil. Both of these ingredients are analogues of the active ingredient of an FDA-approved drug used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), making both X-Hero and male Enhancer unapproved drugs.
What makes these dietary supplements dangerous?
These products may pose a threat to certain individuals because they may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. According to the FDA, consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. FDA advises that ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and they may seek products to enhance sexual performance. FDA advises that either sulfosildenafil or tadalafil may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.
