Companies recall honey contaminated with Viagra and Cialis

WASHINGTON DC – Two companies are recalling their honey products after the FDA issued a warning about the sale of products containing undisclosed Viagra and Cialis.

Both Viagra and Cialis are FDA-approved drugs to treat men with erectile dysfunction, but their use is restricted under the supervision of licensed medical professionals. Both recalls come from companies to which the FDA has sent warning letters.

The latest recall comes from MKS Enterprise LLC. On Monday, the company announced it was recalling its Dose Vital VIP Vital Honey product. The recall was initiated after FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that the product contains the undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredient Tadalafil. It is the active ingredient in Cialis.

The product was sold on the company’s website from March 2022 to July 2022 and distributed in all US states. It came in a black box with 12 sachets of 15 grams of honey.

On July 13, Shopaax.com recalled its Kingdom Honey Royal Honey VIP. This recall was initiated after FDA lab analysis confirmed that the product contained sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.

The product comes in a golden box and contains 12 sachets of 20 grams of honey with different expiry dates stamped on the back. It was promoted and sold for sexual enhancement on various websites and eventually in some retail stores.

The company said it has stopped selling the product online and temporarily removed all other products from the website pending investigation. However, it may still be available on other websites and retail stores.

The FDA said it was discovering a growing number of illegally marketed honey-based or honey-flavored syrups that tested positive for active drug ingredients not listed on the label. This causes problems for people taking medication for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease.

“Products marketed with unidentified ingredients can be dangerous and, in some cases, fatal to consumers,” McMeekin said. We encourage consumers to remain vigilant when shopping online or in-store to avoid purchasing products that put their health at risk, and instead seek out effective, FDA-approved treatments.

Anyone who has purchased Vital Honey is urged to immediately stop using it and return the recalled product for a full refund to MKS Enterprise, LLC, 59 Paulison Ave. Passaic, NJ 07055.

Anyone who purchased Kingdom Honey Royal Honey VIP is urged to immediately discontinue use and return the recalled product for a full refund to Shopaax.com, 2 Burleigh Court A5, Newark, DE 19702.
