Texas Coffee Recalled for Containing Similar Ingredient in Viagra

The best part of waking up should be coffee in your cup... but what if your coffee gave you similar symptoms to that of, say, Viagra? Bestherbs Coffee LLC, headquartered in Grand Prairie, Texas, issued a voluntary recall of its New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Herbs Coffee after receiving the results back from an FDA lab analysis, and the findings were... unexpected, to say the least.

So what's the problem? Well, the FDA confirmed the presence of desmethyl carbodenafil in all New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee. At 13 grams per pack of instant coffee, desmethyl carbodenafil is structurally and chemically similar to sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. If you need a refresher course, Viagra is an FDA-approved prescription for erectile dysfunction.

The coffee being recalled is used as a natural male enhancement, and each box contains about 25 packets of the instant coffee. It was distributed nationwide to individuals both in stores and online, though no illnesses or problems have been reported so far.

Additionally, the instant coffee packs also contain milk, an unlisted ingredient and potential allergen.

The real issue with desmethyl carbodenafil is that it can negatively affect those men on prescriptions that contain nitrates. Those drugs that often have nitrates? Prescriptions for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol,or heart disease. Additionally, it can lower blood pressure to frighteningly low levels.

Customers who are in need of answers can contact Bestherbs Natural Coffee at 817-903-2288 or via email at [email protected], Monday through Friday.

So just to be clear, it's not that the ingredient is wrong, per se, it just doesn't highlight the medical risk upon consumption, which presents a problem for those who are avoiding Viagra for medical reaction reasons.
