DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS - Withdrawal of two products due to presence of sildenafil
USA. Two dietary supplement products (Vinarol from Ultra Health Laboratories Inc and Bionate Inc and Viga from Best Life International) are being voluntarily recalled by the respective companies due to the unlabeled presence of sildenafil, a prescription drug that could have serious health risks if used without medical supervision. Both products were being sold as dietary supplements, without a prescription, for increasing desire, confidence and sexual performance. Consumers who have purchased either of these products are urged to discontinue their use.
