Jack Rabbit dietary supplement recalled due to risk of dangerously low blood pressure
August 25, 2013
Jack Rabbit Inc. has announced that it is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall of one lot of the company’s dietary supplement for sexual enhancement sold under the name Jack Rabbit. FDA analyzed the supplement and the product was found to contain Sildenafil and Tadalafil, which are active ingredients of FDA-approved drugs for erectile dysfunction (ED), making Jack Rabbit an unapproved drug.
According to the FDA, the undeclared ingredients in Jack Rabbit may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as Nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. People with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease are among those who often take nitrates. Other side effects of the undeclared ingredients in Jack Rabbit include headaches and flushing.
Jack Rabbit Pack is marketed as a dietary supplement for sexual enhancement. The supplement is packaged in 4-count blister packs and distributed both online and in retail stores throughout the country.
According to the FDA, all customers who have this product in their possession should stop using it immediately and contact their physician if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking this product. Consumers are being asked to return any unused product to the retail location where they were purchased or contact Jack Rabbit, Inc. for a return address. More information is available the FDA’s website.
