FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 2/13/2023 – Pomona, California, Volt Candy is voluntarily recalling one lot of PrimeZen Black 6000, 2000 mg capsule, to the consumer level. FDA analysis has found PrimeZen Black 6000 capsules to be tainted with sildenafil & tadalafil. Sildenafil and tadalafil are phosphodiesterase (PDE-5) inhibitors found in FDA-approved products for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction. The presence of sildenafil, tadalafil in PrimeZen Black 6000 capsules renders them unapproved drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established and, therefore, subject to recall.
Risk Statement: PrimeZen Black 6000 capsules containing sildenafil and tadalafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may cause a significant drop in blood pressure that may be life threatening. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Among the adult male population who are most likely to use these products, adult males who use nitrates for cardiac conditions are most at risk from these products. Volt Candy has not received reports of state adverse events or injuries to date.
