The makers of two dietary male-enhancement supplements — Silver Sword and Clalis — are voluntarily recalling 430 lots of the products, at the urging of the Food and Drug Administration, after they were found to contain the active ingredient in Viagra.
That ingredient — PDE-5 Inhibitor Sildenafil — could cause adverse reactions and drug interactions, according to the FDA.
The products’ manufacturer, Hardmenstore.com, noted the FDA said the ingredient could potentially result in decreased blood pressure, light-headedness, and dizziness.
Silver Sword is packaged in a tin containing 8 doses, 2 pills per dose. Clalis is packaged in box containing a bottle of 6 pills. The recall includes items produced on or before April 2, 2013.
Consumers who purchased the products should not use them and contact a doctor if they experience any of the side effects.
"As hardmenstore.com receives this product from overseas in a sealed package, representing that it contains only lawful and legitimate ingredients, we are relying on the representations of the Federal Drug Administration that the public interest would best be served by voluntarily complying with their request to get the product off the shelves. Our goal is to protect the safety of the consumer," said Howard Andrew, in a statement on behalf of Hardmenstore.com.
