“Company name: Yamtun7
Brand name: Poseidon
Product recalled: Male Sexual Enhancement Dietary Supplement
Reason of the recall: Undeclared Tadalafil and Sildenafil
FDA Recall date: May 11, 2021
Recall details: Delray Beach, Florida, Yamtun7 is voluntarily recalling all lots of Poseidon Platinu... See Morem 3500 to the consumer level. FDA analysis has found the product to contain undeclared tadalafil and sildenafil. Tadalafil and sildenafil are drugs known as phosphodiesterase (PDE-5) inhibitors found in FDA approved products for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The presence of tadalafil and sildenafil in Poseidon Platinum 3500 makes it an unapproved new drug for which the safety and efficacy have not been established and, therefore subject to recall.

Consumers with underlying medical issues who take Poseidon Platinum 3500 with undeclared tadalafil and sildenafil may experience serious health risks. For example, PDE-5 inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels that may be life-threatening. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates.

To date, Yamtun7 has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

On December 17, 2020, FDA issued a press release that warned consumers to avoid certain products found on Amazon, eBay and other retailers due to hidden and potentially dangerous drug ingredients. It also encouraged online marketplaces to ensure these products are not sold on their platforms. Yamtun7 is notifying its customers by this press announcement and via e-mail of this recall.

Consumers that have Poseidon Platinum 3500, which is being recalled should stop using and destroy them. Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact Yamtun7 by phone at 561-674-3203 7 days of week from 9 am to 5 pm EDT or e-mail yamtun7@gmail.com.

FDA Recall date: May 28, 2021
Recall details: Dash Xclusive is voluntarily recalling all lots of Imperia Elita Vitaccino Coffee to... See Morethe consumer level. FDA analysis has found the product to contain undeclared sibutramine and fluoxetine. Sibutramine was an FDA-approved drug used as an appetite suppressant for weight loss but was withdrawn from the market because of safety issues, including stroke, heart failure and serious health risk especially to those with underlying heart related disease.

Fluoxetine is an FDA approved drug indicated for the treatment of various depressive disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, bulimia and panic disorders. This drug product carries a box warning for suicidal thoughts and behaviors and it needs to be monitored closely by a prescriber.

The presence of sibutramine and fluoxetine in Imperia Elita Vitaccino coffee renders it an unapproved drug for which safety and efficacy has not been established and therefore subject to a recall. Dash Xclusive has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

Products containing undeclared fluoxetine could cause suicidal thinking and behavior, an accumulation of high levels of serotonin in the body or neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS)-like reactions which is a life-threatening neurological disorder; elevated mood state that can cause higher than normal energy levels, restlessness, decreased need for sleep; abnormal bleeding, and low sodium levels.

The product is marketed as a dietary supplement for weight loss and is packaged in a black rectangular box and contains fifteen sachets. The affected Imperia Elita Vitaccino coffee lots include all lots. Product was distributed Nationwide in the USA via internet and by ebay at www.ebay.com.

On December 17, 2020, FDA issued a press release that warned consumers to avoid certain products found on Amazon, eBay and other retailers due to hidden and potentially dangerous drug ingredients.
