Coffee recalled after containing similar active ingredient to Viagra

Coffee recalled after containing similar active ingredient to Viagraā€¯

A coffee company based in Texas has voluntarily recalled its coffee that contains an ingredient that is similar to what is found in Viagra the erectile dysfunction medication, said the United States Food and Drug Administration. The component was not declared on the label and could cause various health problems in some individuals.

The ingredient that was not declared might interact with the nitrates found in certain prescription drugs, like nitroglycerin, and might lower the blood pressure to levels declared as unsafe.

No injuries have been reported, but the FDA says the undeclared ingredient could interact with prescription medicine and lower blood pressure to unsafe levels. People who are allergic or have a severe sensitivity to milk could be at risk of serious or even life threatening allergic reactions if they were to consume the coffee.

It will be the FDA's latest recall involving coffee laced with the ingredient.

No illnesses have been reported related to drinking the coffee.

Apparently, an FDA probe found desmethyl carbodenafil within the packets. Ultimately, Stiff Bull blamed a manufacturer in Malaysia of covertly replacing Maca Root and Tongkat Ali with desmethyl carbodenafil in an attempt to reduce costs. Stiff Bull Herbal Coffee faced a similar recall a year ago, as did the sellers of Caverlo Natural Herbal Coffee in May. The product also contained undisclosed desmethyl carbodenafil.

The coffee-which has also been found to contain unlisted milk products-comes in 13-gram packets, in boxes of 25 packets.

Founded by Albert Yee, Bestherbs advertised the instant coffee as a male enhancement supplement. The product was sold through the company's website and distributed nationwide.

The Viagra-like coffee subject to the FDA recall was produced between July 2014 and June 2016. Obviously those who know they have received products with this barcode should return them to the place where they bought them or to the online outlet, especially if you are showing symptoms. Lee did not disclose exactly how much coffee is actually involved in the FDA recall.
