Rock-It Man Male Enhancement Supplement Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Consumer Concepts recalls some Rock-It Man Male Enhancement Capsules due to undeclared prescription drug analogue. FDA: http://ht.ly/jUwnr

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm347026.htm

Additional information:1842 - Rock-ItManSupplement
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports Rock-It Man Male Enhancement Capsules sold between October 2012 and April 2013 were tested and found to contain an analogue of an ingredient in an FDA-approved drug. Further tests conducted by the FDA concluded the recalled Supplements contained hydroxythiohomosildenafil.

The chemical Hydroxythiohomosildenafil is an analogue of sildenafil and is close in structure to sildenafil and is consequently, expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. Sildenafil is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in an FDA approved drug that is used to treat Erectile Dysfunction (“ED”) making the recalled Rock-It Man Male Enhancement an unapproved new drug.

According to the FDA, the undeclared active ingredient poses a threat to consumers because hydroxythiohomosildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates as part of their treatment plan under the supervision of a medical doctor. Additionally, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, like sildenafil, may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.

BabyGap Sleeper, Sleep Gown Recall [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Gap Inc. recalls some BabyGap Footed One-Piece Sleepers and Sleep Gowns due to flammability hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/jUiAn

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/26527r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following BabyGap Clothing products are subject to this recall:

  • Peter Rabbit graphic footed one-piece / Beatrix Potter for BabyGap (80% cotton, 20% polyester) (style 301501)
  • Peter Rabbit thermal one-piece / Beatrix Potter for BabyGap (100% cotton) (style 301512)
  • Peter Rabbit footed one-piece / Beatrix Potter for BabyGap (100% cotton) (style 301482)
  • Velour footed one-piece (78% cotton, 22% polyester) (style 301161)
  • Velour footed one-piece (78% cotton, 22% polyester) (style 912831)
  • Lapped knit bundler / Sleep gown with elastic bottom (100% cotton) (style 301165)

Health Canada/Santé Canada says its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled BabyGap Footed One-Piece Sleepers and Sleep Gowns do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian law. Loose-fitting children’s sleepwear can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches more readily than tight-fitting sleepwear, and once ignited will burn rapidly, potentially resulting in severe burns to large areas of the child’s body. For this reason, cotton is not permitted in loose-fitting sleepwear.
