FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 7/21/22 – Wilmington DE, Ultra Supplement LLC is voluntarily recalling lot number DAP272109, exp 4/1/26 of Sustango capsules packaged in 10-count blisters packaged in a carton to the consumer level. Ultra Supplement was notified by Amazon that laboratory analysis has found the product to be tainted with tadalafil, an ingredient in FDA approved products for treatment of male erectile dysfunction in the family of drugs known as phosphodiesterase (PDE-5) inhibitors. The presence of tadalafil in Sustango makes this product an unapproved drug for which the safety and efficacy has not been established and therefore, subject to recall.
Consumers with underlying medical issues who take Sustango capsules with undeclared tadalafil may experience health risks. For example, PDE-5 inhibitors may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels that may be life-threatening. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease often take nitrates. To date, Ultra Supplement has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
The product is marketed as a dietary supplement for male enhancement and is packaged in 10-count blisters packaged in a carton, ASIN X0024468I9. The affected cartons include Lot DAP272109, Exp. 4/1/26. The product can be identified by the label below.

It also encouraged online marketplaces to ensure these products are not sold on their platforms.
