Honey recalled after FDA detects active ingredient to treat erectile dysfunction in product


Shopaax.com in Newark, DE is recalling all lots of Kingdom Honey Royal Honey VIP because it contains undeclared sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction.

The recall was initiated after an FDA lab analysis confirmed that Kingdom Honey Royal Honey VIP contains sildenafil.

The FDA issued a warning letter to the company, along with three other honey companies, about the presence of active drug ingredients in their products.

FDA approval of Viagra is limited to use under the supervision of a licensed healthcare professional. Use of products containing the undeclared active ingredient may pose a threat to consumers, as the active ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may cause a significant drop in blood pressure life-threatening blood pressure. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Among the adult male population most likely to use these products, adult men who use nitrates for heart problems have the highest exposure to these products.
