Coffee Recalled for Containing Similar Active Ingredient Found in Viagra

This coffee is being recalled because it contains a Viagra-like ingredient

Bestherbs Coffee, a Texas-based coffee company, has issued a voluntary recall on its "New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Herbs Coffee" for containing an ingredient similar to Viagra.

FDA laboratory analysis confirmed the presence of desmethyl carbodenafil.

"Desmethyl carbodenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction", the publication quoted the FDA as saying in a statement.

Yee, 67, told The Washington Post when contacted on Thursday that he expects a few hundred to a thousand bags sold between July 2014 and June 2016 to be returned to him and then handed over to the FDA for destruction. As NPR's Scott Hensley noted back in 2010, the subtly named Magic Power Coffee - another beverage billed as an aphrodisiac of sorts - drew regulators' attention for its undeclared use of hydroxythiohomosildenafil.

While the coffee was marketed as a "male enhancement product", according to Time, the Viagra-like effects were not publicised, and the undeclared ingredients could cause serious health problems.

The undeclared drug could lower blood pressure to risky levels.

No illness has been reported. The coffee also had undeclared milk, which could hurt someone who had a milk allergy. Such products can still be found on eBay sold by different manufacturers who seem to claim their product will "improve energy, sexual ability, and also increase vigor".

Coffee is meant to get people going, but not like this.

The product is only available by internet order, and Bestherbs Natural is notifying its customers of the recall by phone.

Albert Yee said the coffee was everywhere you looked in the densely packed vendor stalls along avenues in Malaysian cities: an instant mix with a natural ingredient similar to what's found in Viagra that helps men with erectile dysfunction. In their report, FDA said Caverflo.com was recalling their product, packaged in 25-gram foil packs.
