Public Alert No. 029/2022 – Public Alert On Recall Of Pink Pussycat Capsules By F&S Medical Supply Due To The Presence Of Undeclared Sildenafil
May 17, 2022,
The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) is notifying the general public that F&S Medical Supply, dba Pink Toyz is recalling one lot of Pink Pussycat 3000 mg capsules. This is because FDA analysis has found the product Pink Pussycat to be tainted with sildenafil.
Sildenafil is an ingredient known as a phosphodiesterase (PDE-5) inhibitor found in an FDA approved product for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The presence of sildenafil in Pink Pussycat capsules renders the product an unapproved drug for which the safety and efficacy has not been established and, therefore, subject to recall.
The implicated products are marketed as dietary supplements for male sexual enhancement and sold online (Amazon at www.amazon.com).
The undeclared tadalafil or sildenafil ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels that may be life threatening. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.
Consumers with underlying medical issues who take Pink Pussycat with undeclared tadalafil may experience serious health risks as the PDE-5 inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some of their prescription drugs.
The details of the affected product are as follows;
The product is marketed as a dietary supplement for male sexual enhancement and is packaged in 1 count blister pack.
