Man Of Steel Recalled – Adulterated

It took more than a month for the distributor of the “male enhancement” products Man of Steel and Man of Steel 2 to do it, but the company has finally pulled the products, which the company freely admits are illegally tainted with a pharmaceutical drug, from the marketplace.

The company says it has not received any reports itself of anyone taking either product and suffering an adverse medical event but it is unclear from the company’s press release if that is also true of the US Food and Drug Administration. Even back in June, when FDA issued advisories about the “supplements” it did not say what, if anything, encouraged investigators to test Man of Steel products for tampering.

Of course, as always, the main concern with Man of Steel is that men who already take certain medications (like nitrates) will take this schlock, not realizing that it contains sildenafil that is not disclosed on the packaging. Those men could suffer, among other problems, a sudden and life-threatening drop in blood pressure.

Sildenafil, as you probably already know, is the active ingredient in prescription ED medications like Viagra.

As far as I can tell, there is no information whatsoever about the recall at the products’ official website, (Lisa’s Note: contains images not appropriate for workplace viewing.)

The company says that 175 lot codes are covered here. All of them carry an expiration code of 10-17-18.

You know what comes next: If you have any Man of Steel or Man of Steel 2 still on hand you are urged not to take it. And if you took it and believe you suffered any kind of side effect or interaction you are encouraged to speak to your healthcare provider for guidance.
