FDA Recalls Dietary Supplement

The FDA recalled three types of dietary supplements known as RockHard Weekend after the supplements were found to contain ingredients related to the active ingredients found in Viagra. The ingredient, sulfoaildenfil, was not listed by the company on the packaging label.

Sulfoaildenfil could cause serious injury or even death in some individuals. Sulfoaildenfil may interact with nitrates, an ingredient found in medicines that treat diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other conditions. This interaction may cause the person’s blood pressure to drop to dangerously low levels and could result in death.

RockHard Weekend is made by RockHard Laboratories and distributed nationwide. The products involved in the recall could have been purchased at several national retailers, gas stations and local markets. They were sold in both pill and liquid form. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recall includes the Blister Pack, 3ct. Bottle and 8ct Bottle.
