Canada: Health Canada suspends licence for Performance Plus capsules: Product may pose serious health risks
Health Canada is advising Canadians that it has suspended the product licence for Performance Plus capsules because it may pose serious health risks, such as heart attack and stroke. Performance Plus is distributed by TW Trade and promoted as a natural health product for sexual enhancement. Health Canada laboratory testing found that it contains a prescription drug (sildenafil) that is not listed on the product label. Prescription drugs should be used only under the advice and supervision of a healthcare professional because they are used to treat specific conditions and may cause serious side effects. A suspended licence means that it is illegal to sell this product.

The product comes in packages containing blister packs of 2 or 10 capsules. Consumers should stop using this product. Consult their healthcare professional if they have used this product and have health concerns.
