The United States: Public Notification: Bali Mojo Contains Hidden Drug Ingredient Tadalafil
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers not to purchase or use Bali Mojo, a product promoted and sold for sexual enhancement and sold on various websites and in some retail stores.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Bali Mojo contains tadalafil, the active ingredient in the FDA approved prescription drug Cialis, used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). This undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

Consumers should stop using this product immediately and throw it away. Consumers who have experienced any negative side effects should consult a health care professional as soon as possible.

This notification is to inform the public of a growing trend of dietary supplements or conventional foods with hidden drugs and chemicals. These products are typically promoted for sexual enhancement, weight loss, and body building and are often represented as being “all natural.” FDA is unable to test and identify all products marketed as dietary supplements that have potentially harmful hidden ingredients. Consumers should exercise caution before purchasing any product in the above categories.

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details:

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