Canada: Vita-X Revitalizing Capsules for men may pose serious health risks
 
Health Canada is advising Canadians that two versions of Vita-X Revitalizing Capsules by Lanlay Healthmetic Inc., promoted for “long lasting vital energy for men”, may pose serious health risks. One version contains seven capsules and has “NPN 80053009”, a Natural Product Number (NPN) indicating Health Canada authorization, on the label. The second version contains one capsule, has no NPN on the label and is not authorized by Health Canada.

Health Canada tested the unauthorized version, which it had seized from an Etobicoke, ON, store, and found it to contain sildenafil, a prescription drug that was not declared on the label. Neither version of the product is authorized to contain sildenafil. Lanlay Healthmetic Inc. has confirmed that the two versions are manufactured by the same contract manufacturer, which means that it is possible that both versions contain sildenafil.

As a result, Health Canada has suspended the product licence, which means it is now illegal to sell this product in Canada. Health Canada has also asked the company to stop selling and to recall both versions of the product.

Please refer to the following website in Health Canada for details: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/../68266a-eng.php

In Hong Kong, the above product is not a registered pharmaceutical product.
