Canada: "Forta for Men" sex enhancement product recalled - contains undeclared homosildenafil
One lot of the sex enhancement product "Forta for Men" (NPN 80045132) is being recalled after Health Canada testing confirmed it contains an undeclared drug: homosildenafil. Homosildenafil is similar to the prescription drug sildenafil and may pose serious health risks. The distributor, Vivo Brand Management Inc. of Cornwall, ON, is recalling the affected lot, which was sold through retail stores across the country and online. Homosildenafil is an unauthorized substance similar to sildenafil. Sildenafil should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner. Products containing sildenafil or similar substances (known as analogs) should never be used by individuals taking any kind of nitrate drug (e.g. nitroglycerine) as it can cause potentially life-threatening low blood pressure.

Consumers are advised to consult your doctor if you have used this product and have health concerns.
