This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet
Nature & Health Co. announces a recall of its male enhancement formula after FDA analysis found samples of Libimax contained tadalafil, the active ingredient in Eli Lilly's Rx erectile dysfunction drug Cialis. FDA warns that tadalafil, in conjunction with nitrates found in prescription cholesterol drugs, can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure. Brea, Calif.-based Nature & Health said April 27 the recalled product was sold in retail stores in California, Georgia, Illinois, Ohio and Texas. FDA has emphasized it will seize adulterated supplement products when firms fail to comply with recall requests (1"The Tan Sheet" July 28, 2008, p. 15)
