FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 12, 2010 – Pompano Beach, FL –Atlas Operations, Inc. announced today that it is expanding its December 12, 2009 voluntary nationwide recall of the company’s dietary supplements for sexual enhancement to include Stamin It, Erectzia, and Vigor 100.

These products were sold as dietary supplements throughout the United States.   Atlas Operations, Inc. is conducting a voluntary recall after being informed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that lab analyses found that the products to contain Sulfoaildenafil, an analogue of Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used in the treatment of male Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making these products unapproved new drugs. The active drug ingredient is not listed on the product label.

The undeclared ingredient may pose a threat to the consumer because the interaction of the analogue with some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take other prescription drugs.  Erectile Dysfunction is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.
