Green Planet, Inc. Issues a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of One Lot of "Night Bullet," a Product Marketed as a Dietary Supplement to Support Male Sexual Performance, Due to Undeclared, Potentially Hazardous Active Ingredient
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 12, 2013 - Riverside, CA – Green Planet, Inc. is conducting a voluntary consumer recall of a product sold as a dietary supplement under the brand name of "Night Bullet," found to contain trace amounts of an analogue of an FDA-approved drug.
Finished product of Night Bullet was tested and found to contain trace amounts of an analogue of an FDA-approved drug. Analytical tests conducted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of Night Bullet found that the product contains trace amounts of Sulfohydroxyhomosildenafil and Aminotadalafil. Sulfohydroxyhomosildenafil and Aminotadalafil are an analogues of sildenafil. Sildenafil is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in an FDA-approved drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) making this product an unapproved drug.
These undeclared active ingredients pose a threat to consumers because sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions and they may seek products to enhance sexual performance. Additionally sildenafil may cause side effects such as, headaches and flushing. Green Planet has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
Night Bullet is marketed as a supplement for male enhancement. The recalled products are in capsule form, packaged in one (1) count blister packs. The lot and expiration date can be found on the back of the package. The following lot is being recalled:
