An herbal supplement company is recalling a male enhancement drug that that may be a little bit more than its users bargained for.
Freedom Trading is voluntarily recalling the dietary supplement Super Power which is described on its packaging as "all natural libido enhancer" that allows users to "ride through the night." Despite its natural claims, laboratory tests found Super Power contains trace amounts of sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. Sildenafil is an FDA-approved drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction making Super Power an unapproved new drug.
While some users of the herbal supplement may consider the hidden ingredient a bonus, the undeclared addition poses a threat to consumers because sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.
The recalled pills are in capsule form, packaged in twocount blister packs. The lot and expiration date can be found on the back of the package. The following lot is being recalled:
