CRM Laboratories Recalls Supplements Marketed as ED Treatment
CRM Laboratories is conducting a consumer/user level recall of all X-ROCK 3 Day Pill For Men and Z-ROCK products sold between October, 2011 and April, 2012. Finished product of X-ROCK 3 Day Pill for Men and Z-ROCK was tested and found to contain an analogue of an ingredient in an FDA-approved drug. Analytical tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded that the products contained sildenafil and hydroxythiohomosildenafil. Hydroxythiohomosildenafil is an analogue of sildenafil and is close in structure to sildenafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. Sildenafil is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in a FDA approved drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) making these products unapproved new drugs.
These undeclared active ingredients pose a threat to consumers because sildenafil and hydroxythiohomosildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions and they may seek products to enhance sexual performance. Additionally, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, like sildenafil, may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.
All codes of X-Rock 3 Day Pill for Men and Z-Rock All Natural Male Supplement, within expiration, are included in this recall. The products are blue capsules individually packaged on a cardboard blister card; some older packaging configurations include blister double pack (2 capsules per blister card) and white plastic bottles (6, 12, 24 count). The products were sold as wholesale in the US to distributors who further distributed it nationwide through internet sales and at retail.
