Sexual enhancement supplements recalled

The supplement manufacturer, American Lifestyle, has recalled several of their products promoting sexual desire and performance because they were found to contain undeclared prescription drugs.

Supplements are not subject to the same rigorous safety testing that prescriptions drugs must undergo and are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). For this reason, no supplement can contain any amount of prescription drugs.

The recalled supplements,  Vicerex and Black Ant, were found to have an unauthorized boost from the prescription drugs tadalaril and aildenafill. Better known as  Viagra and Cialis.

American Lifestyle recalled the supplements voluntarily and no adverse events have been reported yet.

But the FDA warned consumers that other sexual enhancement supplements might also contain undeclared drugs, and to use caution whenever using supplements, especially ones that promise sexual enhancement, weight loss and body-building.
