Reesna is voluntarily recalling all lots of Fuel Up Plus and Fuel Up High Octane dietary supplements because they contain hydroxythiohomosildenafil, an analogue of sildenafil. This drug is used for the treatment of male Erectile Dysfunction, making the supplement an unapproved drug. They were distributed in August 2015.
Hydroxythiohomosildenafil poses a threat to consumers because it can interact with nitrates found in prescription drugs and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. People who have diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrate-containing drugs. No illnesses or injuries have been reported to date in connection with the consumption of this product.
