FDA Warns Consumers About Health Risks of Herbal Coffee Products from Malaysia

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers not to drink Longjack Coffee, in addition to other instant coffee products that have been recalled recently. These products are made in Malaysia and are promoted and sold online for sexual enhancement. They contain undeclared drugs that can be deadly.

Warning Recall SignThe other products the FDA is warning about include Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee, CaverFlo Coffee, and AMPT Coffee. They are labeled to contain instant coffee, non-dairy creamer, and other ingredients. But CaverFlo Coffee and AMPT Coffee contain undeclared sildenafil and tadalafil. And Longjack Coffee and Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee contain desmethyl carbondenafil, an analogue of sildenafil. Those are prescription drugs and are not sold over the counter. In addition, all of these products contain undeclared milk.

The products are labeled  “natural” and “herbal” but they “can cause serious harm,” according to the FDA notice. Those undeclared active ingredients can interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol often take nitrates.

The FDA has received one serious adverse event report related to the use of CaverFlo Coffee. Be wary of similarly marketed instant coffee products that are being sold online or in retail stores.

If you purchased these products, do not use them. Discard them according to your community’s rules for getting rid of prescription drugs, or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

If you have taken one of these products and have experienced health problems, see your doctor. You can report the issue to the FDA using their MetWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
