SOS Telecom Inc is voluntarily recalling dietary supplements that contain sildenafil.

The presence of the PDE-5 inhibitor mean these supplements are unapproved drugs. Sildenafil was not listed on the product labels.

“This undeclared active ingredient poses a threat to consumers because sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels,” the FDA said in a statement. “Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Additionally, the product may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.”

The affected products are:

· Tiger-X (Lot No: 9236999; Best use by: 12/16/2016): 1 capsules per pack / 24 single packs per box.

· Ninja-X (Lot: 7920888; Best Use by: 6/31/2018) 1 capsules per pack / 24 single packs per box.

· Ginseng Power-X (Lot: 7788965; Best use by: 10/15/2018) 1 capsules per pack / 24 single packs per box.

· Super Samurai-X (Lot No: 7920499; Best use by: 10/15/2016) 1 capsules per pack / 24 single packs per box.
