American Lifestyle Recalls Vicerex Capsules and Black Ant Capsules, a Dietary Supplement, Due to Undeclared Active Ingredients

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding a recall of Vicerex UPC 893490820087 and Black Ant UPC 4026666142546. Laboratory analysis conducted by the FDA has determined the Vicerex product contains undeclared tadalafil and the Black Ant product contains undeclared sildenafil. Tadalafil and sildenafil are FDA-Approved drugs used to treat male erectile dysfunction (ED), making the Vicerex and the Black Ant products unapproved new drugs.

Risk Statement: These undeclared active ingredients poses a threat to consumers because tadalafil and sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

Vicerex is sold in blister packs containing ten (10) capsules and Black Ant is sold in a box containing four (4) individually wrapped capsules. The product is distributed worldwide by American Lifestyle by on-line sales and retail. The products are sold without medical prescription.
