Magic Power Coffee recall: magic perhaps, but not coffee...

June 29, 2010 | 12:38 pm

Now here's an interesting recall. In fact, it's so, shall we say, unusual, that we decided to let you read the company's press release, sent to us by e-mail, for yourselves. Here goes:

INZ Distributors Inc./Magic Power Coffee Inc. of Brooklyn, NY, announced today that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of the dietary supplement product sold under the name Magic Power Coffee. The Company has been informed by representatives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that lab analysis of one lot of the product by the FDA found that the product contains undeclared hydroxythiohomosildenafil, similar in structure to Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used for the treatment of male Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making Magic Power Coffee an unapproved drug.

Here's a link to the Food and Drug Administration's release on the subject.
