US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: FDA Logo BlueHaute Health, LLC recalls all lots of Virilis Pro, PHUK and Prolifta Nutritional Supplements due to unapproved drug hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/poWw4

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm370506.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Virilis Pro is packaged in one (1) and two (2) capsule blister packs and 10 capsule bottles;
  • PHUK is packaged in one (1) and two (2) capsule blister packs and 4, 12, 24 capsule bottles and
  • Prolifta is packaged in one (1) and two (2) capsule blister packs and 4, 12, and 24 capsule bottles.

All three products were distributed nationwide to wholesale and retail customers and via the Web.

According to the FDA, Virilis Pro, PHUK and Prolifta have been found to contain amounts of the PDE-5 Inhibitor Sildenafil, which is an active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED). Sildenafil has the potential to interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to unsafe levels. The presence of the active, yet undeclared, ingredient Sildenafil makes these Nutritional Supplements unapproved drugs.

Consumers with Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and/or heart disease often take nitrates. Additionally, Sildenafil may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing. To date, there have been no reported adverse events associated with the presence of Sildenafil in Virilis Pro, PHUK or Prolifta.

According to the ACCC, although no injuries or safety defects have been reported in respect of X-Rated branded Motorcycle Helmets, identical Helmets manufactured in the same facility with different branding did not meet performance requirements that are outlined in the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1698:2006. There is a possibility, therefore, the Helmets may not provide adequate protection to the wearer in the event of an accident and may increase the risk of death or serious injury to the wearer.
