Dietary Supplement Recall

Comments Off

Bodee LLC has issued a voluntary recall of all its Encore dietary supplements after the FDA determined that a chemical analyis of the supplement contained harmful, undeclared ingredients. The FDA analysis showed that Encore Tabs contained aminotadalafil, an analog of tadalafil, the active ingredient of a FDA-approved drug used for Erectile Dysfunction (ED). FDA maintains Aminotadalafil is close in structure to tadalafil and is expected to possess a similar pharmacological and adverse event profile. This undeclared chemical poses a threat to consumers because it may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.
