XROCK INDUSTRIES, LLC Recalls X-ROCK

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received the following news release regarding the recall of X-ROCK, a product marketed as a dietary supplement to support male sexual performance, due to unlisted, potentially hazardous ingredient

X-ROCK for Men contains sildenafil and hydroxythiohomosildenafil, an analogue of sildenafil.  Sildenafil is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in an FDA-approved drug that is used to treat erectile dysfunction.

These undeclared active ingredients pose a threat to consumers because sildenafil and hydroxythiohomosildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels.  Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.  Additionally, hydroxythiohomosildenafil, like sildenafil, may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing. 

All codes of X-Rock for Men, within expiration, are included in this recall.
