GL Holdings said the recall impacts Green Lumber dietary supplements, which are packaged in 2, 4 and 10 capsule blisters. The company said the products were purchased on or before Aug. 10, and are tainted with tadalafil, which, when combined with medications containing nitrates, may cause a drop in blood pressure that could be life-threatening for consumers.
It was available for both purchase in stores across the U.S. and Canada, as well as online.
The product is available in packages of 2, 4 and 10 capsule blisters.
“Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often taken nitrates and may be the population most likely to be affected,” according to the FDA recall notice. “To date, GL Holdings has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.”
The company said it became aware of the issue after an FDA analysis found a lot of the product distributed between June and August was tainted with the ingredient. The FDA has approved the tadalafil for erectile dysfunction treatment, but not for use in Green Lumber products.
The lots impacted by the recall bear the UPC codes: X0020TSV4R, X0020TRRHJ, X0020TUJLZ. Other affected products may be marked on the blister packages with the following: XC12EXP12/2020, XC06EXP06/2021, XC10EXP10/2021, XC02EXP02/2022, or XC04EXP04/2022.
