The United States: Nature’s Rx issues voluntary nationwide recall of Silver Bullet 10x to undeclared PDE-5 inhibitors in the product
 
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announces that Nature’s Rx is voluntarily recalling quantity lots of Silver Bullet 10x, to the hospital, retail or consumer level. This recall has been initiated because the product was found to contain undeclared sildenafil and tadalafil, the active ingredient in Viagra and Cialis respectively, which are PDE-5 inhibitors. The undeclared PDE-5 inhibitors in the product may pose serious health risks because consumers with underlying medical issues may take the products without knowing that they can cause serious harm or interact in dangerous ways with other drugs they may be taking. For example, PDE-5 inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and thus can lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates. Nature’s Rx has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

The product, Silver Bullet 10x, is used as a male enhancement nutritional supplement and is packaged in mylar package containing 10 capsules with an expiry date: 11/2020. Silver Bullet 10x was sold on eBay and website.
