Recall

The Protein Shoppe, LLC is voluntarily recalling all lots of “Red-E” (Male Enhancement tablet) to the consumer level. This recall has been initiated after an FDA laboratory analysis found the product to contain undeclared sildenafil, a Phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) inhibitor which is the active ingredient in an FDA approved drug used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The presence of sildenafil in Red-E renders it an unapproved drug for which safety and efficacy have not been established and, therefore, subject to recall.
The undeclared PDE-5 inhibitor in the product may pose serious health risks to consumers with underlying medical issues. For example, PDE-5 inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels that is life threatening and could result in serious adverse health consequences. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates. To date The Protein Shoppe, LLC has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
The product, Red-E (Male Enhancement tablet), is marketed as a male enhancement nutritional supplement, the product is a scored octagonal tablet with “Red” embossed on either side of the score line on one side of the tablet which is contained in small plastic bag with a black label stapled to it, UPC. The Red-E pill was sold online at the website: http://www.rgvproteinshoppe.com
