Xiadafil VIP Tabs Recall

On Tuesday, the FDA issued an alert warning consumers not to buy or use Xiadafil VIP Tablets, which are sold as a dietary supplement over the internet for sexual enhancement and to treat erectile dysfunction. The FDA has requested that the manufacturer, SEI Pharmaceuticals, issue a Xiadafil VIP Tabs recall because the tablets contain an undeclared ingredient which could impact the users blood pressure and lead to potentially life-threatening injuries.

Although Xiadafil VIP Tabs are marketed as an “all-natural” product, an FDA chemical analysis found that the tablets contain hydroxyhomosildenafil, which an analog of the active pharmaceutical ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra. The FDA has called Xiadafil VIP an “illegally marketed drug” due to the undeclared ingredient.

“Because these products are labeled as ‘all natural dietary supplements,’ consumers may assume that they are harmless and pose no health risk,” said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
