Pensacola, Fla. — The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a voluntary recall on a dietary supplement sold to boost your libido.
The FDA states the voluntary recall involves “all lots” of Up2 sold at Med Man, because it is tainted with sildenafil.
“Sildenafil is an FDA-approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction,” the FDA said.
“The presence of sildenafil in Up2 products renders them unapproved drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established, therefore subject to recall.”
The FDA added sildenafil can interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels which can be life threatening. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates and may be the population most likely to be affected.
To date, Med Man has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
Med Man is notifying its distributors and their customers by written email and is arranging for destruction of all recalled products.
