Coffee recalled for containing 'active ingredient in Viagra'

An erectile dysfunction-type drug was found in coffee in Texas, prompting the coffee company to recall the roast, according to Thursday reports.

When the federal agency did a lab analysis on this type of coffee, investigators found desmethyl carbodenafil, which is structurally similar to the sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra.

These undeclared ingredients may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to unsafe levels.

The coffee includes desmethyl carbodenafil, a chemical similar to the active ingredient in Viagra but is not listed on the packaging, says the FDA.

It also contains undeclared milk.

And now a coffee has been recalled for being too similar to male sexual booster Viagra.

The undeclared Viagra-like ingredient "may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs, such as nitroglycerin, and may lower blood pressure to unsafe levels". No illnesses have been reported to date, the FDA stated.

The coffee was distributed nationwide to consumers via individuals or internet.

The coffee also contains undeclared milk which could be unsafe for people who are allergic to milk or have milk sensitivity.

Bestherbs Coffee owner Albert Yee told The Washington Post that coffee such as this is hugely popular in Malaysia, and that "There are whole streets of it, like tequila in Mexico".

This is not the first time coffee products containing the ingredient have been recalled by the FDA. The manufacturer is attempting to notify its customers of the voluntary recall. Customers will be reimbursed.

Still, the recall notice has been issued for the 13-gram, red packs with UPC 557205060083 on the box and containing 25 packets.
