Tons of sexual enhancement pills and poppers sold at two stores in Etobicoke and Scarborough have been recalled by the federal government for various health issues.
More than 60 products have been deemed unsafe for consumption by the federal government, many of which contain prescription drugs that should only be taken under medical supervision.
In Etobicoke, more than 30 products sold at Wiggles Adult Video have been recalled. They all have very strange names and have long lists of potentially harmful ingredients.
Some of these products contain yohimbe (a bark extract), sildenafil (a prescription used for erectile dysfunction) and the unauthorized substance nortadalafil.
Each of these ingredients can cause many side effects and, if taken by some people, can lead to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, chest pain, high blood pressure, and abnormal heart rhythm.
The other half of the products sold in Ontario were sold at Grace Daily Mart in Scarborough, which includes items like “Alien 2 Power Platinum 11000”, “Black Panther #1”, “Stiff Rox” and “Spanish Fly 20,000”.
The majority of the products are labeled as sexual enhancement pills, but a number of poppers have also been recalled, including “Blue Boy Originals”, “Double Scorpio Emerald” and the classic “Rush Original”.
“These products are labeled to contain or have been tested and found to contain hazardous ingredients,” the federal government said.
Unauthorized products may contain ingredients not listed on the label, improper dosages, or a combination of unsafe ingredients.
“Using a product that contains ingredients the consumer is unaware of increases the risk of dangerous allergies and interactions with other medications and foods,” the webpage reads.
Everyone should stop using these products immediately and contact their doctor if they have any health concerns.
