INZ Distributors Inc./Magic Power Coffee Inc. Conducts a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Magic Power Coffee Dietary Supplement
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - June 25, 2010 - INZ DISTRIBUTORS INC./MAGIC POWER COFFEE INC. of Brooklyn, NY announced today that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of the dietary supplement product sold under the name, Magic Power Coffee.
The Company has been informed by representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that lab analysis of one lot of the product by the FDA found that the product contains undeclared hydroxythiohomosildenafil, similar in structure to Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used for the treatment of male Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making Magic Power Coffee an unapproved drug. The hydroxythiohomosildenafil drug ingredient is not listed on the product label.
Hydroxythiohomosildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease often take nitrates.
