Dietary Supplement Recall

Atlas Operations Inc. is recalling dietary supplements for sexual enhancement sold under about 37 brand names. The products might contain an ingredient not declared on their labels. The undeclared ingredient is similar to a Food and Drug Administration-approved drug used to treat erectile dysfunction, making these recalled products not approved drugs.

The interaction of the ingredient with some prescription drugs could lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. No illnesses or incidents have been reported, according to the Pompano Beach, Fla., company.

The products are being sold as dietary supplements online and in retail stores throughout the nation. Laboratory results found that products tested from certain batches of these brands contain the undeclared ingredient: Rock Hard, 72 Hours, Stamin It, Finally On Demand, Sexual Surge, Staminil and Vierect.

The recalled products have the following numbers in the middle of their lot codes: 494, 520C, 520B, 520A, 520, 521, 705, 706, 779 or 807.
