Hardmenstore.com Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of 72HP, Evil Root and Pro Power Max Due to Undeclared Sildenafil
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - August 27, 2013 - Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Upon request of the FDA, Hardmenstore.com is voluntarily recalling 1000 lots of 72HP, Evil Root and Pro Power Max at the consumer level. According to representatives of the FDA, 72HP, Evil Root and Pro Power Max have reportedly been found to contain amounts of the PDE-5 Inhibitor, sildenafil, which is the active ingredient in an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED).

These products are intended to be used as a dietary supplement and sexual supplement. 72HP is packaged in a single blister pack containing 1 dose. Evil Root is packaged in box containing a bottle of 6 pills. Pro Power Max is packaged in a single blister pack containing 1 dose.
All lots of 72HP, Evil Root and Pro Power Max are included in this recall. 72HP can be identified by the yellow packaging with a black horse insignia. Evil Root can be identified by its orange box with blue Chinese characters. Pro Power Max can be identified by the black and red packaging with flames on the bottom of the packaging.
