FDA recall : Stiff Nights is getting yanked again

One of the most commented posts so far is the one where I listed an FDA recall from November 2009 about a product called “Stiff Nights”.

Back then, the FDA said “Stiff Nights, a product marketed as a dietary supplement for sexual enhancement, contains an ingredient that can dangerously lower blood pressure and is illegal.”

Stiff Nights got yanked pretty quickly, and everyone was upset how fast it was pulled. Well here we are in August of 2010, and guess what? Stiff Nights is now getting yanked with a bunch of others at the same time. (Would you believe me if I said no pun intended?)

Junior high humor aside, today the company that makes all these products said they are… “conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of products sold under the following names: Stiff Nights, Aziffa, Size Matters, Erex, Mojo, Hard Drive, Eyeful, Red Magic, Straight Up, Zotrex, Monster Excyte, WOW, Xaitrex, Verect, Prolatis, Xytamax, Maxyte, Libidinal, OMG, OMG45, and Zilex (with Golden Spear).”

Mojo? Isn’t that a cartoon character? And OMG? Why not LOL while you’re at it?

Anyhow, apparently, all of these products have sulfoaildenafil.



Sulfoaildenafil is basically sildenafil, a Viagra knockoff. And since this ingredient isn’t listed on the products, and that “the undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels”, the FDA says they all gotta’ go!

All of the products listed “with manufacture or distribution dates prior to June 17, 2010 are being recalled” even though “no illnesses or adverse effects have been reported to the company to date in connection with these products.”

Here’s the link to the official FDA recall article.
