Texas Coffee Brand Pulled after Discovery of Viagra-like Ingredient

This coffee is being recalled because it contains a Viagra-like ingredient

Watchdogs in America have recalled a supposedly "herbal" coffee - "New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Natural Herbs Coffee" - because it secretly contained a drug very similar to Viagra.

Officials with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a test of Bestherbs Coffee's "New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Herbs Coffee".

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. Men with high cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes face a higher risk for the potentially unwanted side effects because they often take nitrates.

Similar coffees, Stiff Bull Herbal Coffee and Caverlo Natural Herbal Coffee, also previously faced recalls after FDA investigation.

The products were sold between July 2014 and June 2016 to customers via the internet. The product was also recalled for having undeclared milk.

A deal was not reached in the meeting , according to congressional aides. "Right now, we have a procedural issue", Ryan said. It's the latest delay tactic", said Representative Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The FDA said the coffee could be risky as it had the potential to lower blood pressure to "dangerous levels" while there were also possible harmful effects if the substance in the coffee interacted with nitrates found in prescription drugs like nitroglycerin.

No illness linked to consumption of the coffee has been reported to date but the company is contacting customers by phone.

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

That discovery has prompted Bestherbs Coffee LLC, the North Texas company behind the product, to voluntarily recall the product nationwide. Such products can still be found on eBay sold by different manufacturers who seem to claim their product will "improve energy, sexual ability, and also increase vigor".

Viagra is known as the FDA-approved prescription drug to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). In their report, FDA said Caverflo.com was recalling their product, packaged in 25-gram foil packs.
