      A&H Focal recalls 29 products marketed as dietary supplements

      The products may contain erectile dysfunction ingredients not listed on the label

      A&H Focal is recalling 29 products marketed as dietary supplements because many contain PDE-5 Inhibitors (i.e. sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, etc.) which is the active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED).

      That makes the tainted dietary supplements unapproved drugs.

      The undeclared active ingredients pose a threat because the PDE-5 Inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

      The following products sold mainly through Asian Markets located in New Jersey and New York, are being recalled: 

      • Black Ant (4600 mg)
      • Indian God Lotion
      • Evil Root (1200 mg)
      • Germany Black Gold (2800 mg)
      • Germany Niubian (3000 mg)
      • Hard Ten Days (4500 mg)
      • Lang Yi Hao (Chaonogsuopian) (500 mg)

      • Lien Chan for Seven Days
      • Maca Gold (6800 mg)

      What to do
