Intelli Health Products, Issues an Expansion to All Lots of their Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Duro Extend Capsules for Men Marketed as Dietary Supplements

December 2, 2010 – Intelli Health Products announced today that it is expanding their voluntary nationwide recall ofDuro Extend Capsules For Men, to include all lot codes.  Intelli Health Products is conducting this recall after being informed by representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that laboratory analysis of Duro Extend Capsules For Men found the product to be adulterated with Sulfoaidenafil, an analogue of Sildenafil which is an FDA approved drug used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making it an unapproved new drug.

Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. ED is a common problem in men with these conditions, and consumers may seek these types of products to enhance sexual performance.

Duro Extend Capsules are sold nationwide. The products are sold individually as a blister pack containing one capsule per unit, in 12-pack or 24-pack display boxes, and in bulk in 3 count and 10 count bottles.  Lot number and expiration dates appear on the seal.  Consumers who have Duro Extend Capsules in their possession should stop using them immediately.

In the event of any adverse side effects due to the consumption of these products, consumers should contact a physician immediately. Any adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax.
