May 30, 2014 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued yet another recall for African Black Ant, Black Ant, and Mojo Risen to clarify that all lots of the products should be taken off the market.
The FDA has discovered hidden, undeclared pharmaceutical drug ingredients — including Viagra (sildenafil) and Cialis (tadalafil) — in products that were distributed to a third party. However, the tests do not prove that the original products are adulterated. According to the FDA recall:
“This recall is a revised version of the recall issued on May 5, 2014 and is revised to reflect the recall of ALL LOTS of the recalled products. Misinformation about the Black Ant product codes and packaging description may have been included in the original press release and this information is intended to clarify any ambiguity and expand the recall to all lots of all recalled products.”
The FDA has taken these products off the market multiple times in the last few years. Black Ant was recalled in March 2011 after the FDA found sildenafil. Mojo Risen was recalled in June 2013 after the FDA found noracetildenafil, a drug that is similar to sildenafil.
The problem is that erectile dysfunction is a common complication of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Medications that treat these diseases often contain nitrates, which can interact with sildenafil and/or tadalafil in dietary supplements. This could lead to serious adverse health consequences.
