Atlas widens ED supplement recall

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Atlas Operations expands the voluntary recall of its sexual enhancement dietary supplements to include the Stamin It, Erectzia, and Vigor 100 products. The Pompano Beach, Fla.-based firm's initial recall began Dec. 12, 2009, after FDA found its products to contain sulfoaildenafil, an analog of sildenafil - an Rx ingredient for erectile dysfunction (1"The Tan Sheet" Dec. 21, 2009, In Brief). Atlas said April 12 it discovered one of its raw ingredients was tainted with sulfoaildenafil, but maintains it did "not in any way knowingly or intentionally violate the law with regard to the distribution of these products." Sexual enhancement and weight-loss products are the types of supplements that FDA most commonly finds to be adulterated with Rx ingredients, and are frequently mentioned by proponents of tighter regulation of the U.S. nutritional products market
