‘X-Rock’ male supplement recalled due to potentially hazardous ingredient

In Food Recalls on April 23, 2012 at 1:57 am

XROCK INDUSTRIES, an independent distributor of the X-ROCK products, is conducting a user level voluntary recall of certain supplement products sold by XROCK INDUSTRIES under the brand name of X-ROCK.

Finished product of X-ROCK for Men was tested and preliminarily found to contain an analogue of an ingredient in an FDA-approved drug. Analytical tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of X-ROCK for Men concluded that the products contained sildenafil and hydroxythiohomosildenafil. Hydroxythiohomosildenafil is an analogue of sildenafil. Sildenafil is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in an FDA-approved drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).

Hydroxythiohomosildenafil is close in structure to sildenafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. 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 for Men, within expiration, are included in this recall. Customers who have this product in their possession should stop using it immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking this product.
