May 30, 2014 — Eugene Oregon, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based dietary supplement company, is expanding a recall of all lots of African Black Ant, Black Ant, and Mojo Risen sexual supplements because they may contain hidden pharmaceutical ingredients, including Viagra (sildenafil) and Cialis (tadalafil).
According to the FDA recall announcement:
“This recall is a revised version of the recall issued on May 5, 2014 and is revised to reflect the recall of ALL LOTS of the recalled products. Misinformation about the Black Ant product codes and packaging description may have been included in the original press release and this information is intended to clarify any ambiguity and expand the recall to all lots of all recalled products.”
The FDA has detected sildenafil and tadalafil in products that were distributed to a third party, but testing has not confirmed that the original recalled products contain the drugs.
The FDA is concerned because erectile dysfunction often affects men with heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Medications to treat these conditions often contain nitrates, which can interact with sildenafil and/or tadalafil and cause life-threatening side effects.
This is not the first time the FDA has attempted to take Black Ant and Mojo Risen off the market. In March 2011, the FDA found sildenafil in Black Ant at doses that were three-times the normal starting level. In June 2013, the FDA found noracetildenafil in Mojo Risen, a drug that is similar to sildenafil.
