The Food and Drug Administration and the company Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Monday announced the voluntary recall of the supplement Stamina-RX.
Consumers are urged to stop using the product and to contact the FDA and the manufacturer with any adverse effects from the supplement.
The FDA’s lab in May found an undeclared ingredient in the supplement. The chemical, called benzamidenafil, is included in the same class of drugs as those used to treat erectile dysfunction.
The chemical is not FDA approved and could pose a threat to individuals taking certain medications for high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol and heart disease.
According to the FDA, Stamina-Rx is not generally recognized as safe and effective for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended, or suggested in its labeling.
The labeling at issue was advertising primarily done through Web sites and print media.
