Vialipro Dietary Supplement: Recall-Undeclared Drug Ingredient[Posted 07/20/2010]
ISSUE: Good Health, Inc. is conducting a voluntary recall after an FDA lab analyses found that the product tested from certain batches of Vialipro contain Sulfoaildenafil, an analogue of Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male Erectile Dysfunction (ED) making this product an unapproved drug. The undeclared ingredient may pose a threat to the consumer because the interaction of the analogue with some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take other prescription drugs.
BACKGROUND: This product is currently being sold as a dietary supplement throughout the U.S. The affected lot numbers being recalled can be found in the company's Press Release.
RECOMMENDATION: Consumers who have purchased Vialipro should discontinue its use and return it to Good Health, Inc.
