(VIP) Viril-Ity-Power Tabs Recall: ED Dietary Supplement

On May 30, 2008, the FDA announced a nationwide recall for Viril-Ity Power (VIP) Tablets. The dietary supplement is sold over-the-counter for erectile dysfunction and sexual enhancement. The tablets contain an undeclared ingredient, hydroxyhomosildenafil, which is an analog of the active chemical ingredient in Viagra.

Earlier the same week, the FDA issued an alert for another dietary supplement which contained the same undeclared ingredient. The FDA requested that SEI Pharmaceuticals issue an Xiadafil VIP Tablet Recall, since the dietary supplement could interact with other medications and impact users’ blood pressure or potentially lead to fatal injuries.

The Viril-Ity-Power Tab recall applies to all lots of the 560mg/serving tablets. They are sold in 2-tablet blister packs and 8-tablet bottles. Consumers have been told to immediately stop using the supplement, since the undeclared chemical could lead to a severe lowering of blood pressure to potentially fatal levels.
