Male enhancement supplement V Maxx RX recalled due to presence of pharmaceutical agent

Filed May 30th, 2012 Laurie

The manufacturer of a dietary supplement product has been forced to recall it from the market because it contains an undeclared analog of a prescription drug that could result in serious and life-threatening side effects for people not able to take it.

According to a release from The Menz Club LLC, the recall includes several Lots of V Maxx RX. The recall is necessary after Food and Drug Administration testing discovered traces of the ingredient sulfoaidenafil, an analog of sildenafil, the Active Ingredient in men’s erectile dysfunction medications. Any product with an undeclared prescription drug agent is considered “adulterated” by the FDA and can not be sold over-the-counter or at all until the product is declared on labeling and then approved by the agency.

For people taking drugs containing nitrates like nitroglycerin could experience dangerous and potentially fatal side effects like a lowered blood pressure. Drugs containing nitrates are often dispensed to diabetics, those with high cholesterol, and heart disease.

The recall includes Single Count, UPC Code 2802803561, Lot Nos. 101108, 101009, 101010, 101011 , Five Count, UPC Code 0972859402, Lot Nos.: 101108, 101109, 101110, Ten Count, UPC code 0913251017, Lot Nos.: 301000, 301001.

V Maxx RX is marketed as a dietary supplement designed for “male enhancement” but joins a growing list of similar products that have been recalled once the FDA discovers they contain some form of sildenafil. V Maxx RX was available for purchase through Web sites specifically for the product or through The Menz Club’s site. It was sold in single-count packages, 5-count blister packs and 10-count bottles.
