Various brands of sexual enhancement dietary supplements made by Atlas Operations Inc. of Florida have been recalled because they contain an ingredient that might pose a health threat, says the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The agency said lab tests found that the products "contain Sulfoaildenafil, an analogue of Sildenafil, an FDA-approved drug used as treatment for male erectile dysfunction, making these products an unapproved drug. The active drug ingredient is not listed on the product label," United Press International reported.

The undeclared ingredient may interact with some prescription drugs and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels, the FDA warned.

The voluntary recall includes dietary supplement capsules sold under the names Aspire One, Sex Enhancer, Staminil, Sexual Surge, Love Fuel, Vaxitrol, Love Fuel 2, Erexa, Zenerect, Arousin, 72 Hours, Enhancement, Red Hot Sex, Libiplus, Erexxx, Tacktol, Amour for Him, Erousa, Rockhard, Ezerex, Topviril, Vierect, APL, Clyamax, Rainbow Rocket, Finally on Demand, Xtremexcite, Whatzup and Depth Charge. The products' lot numbers are 494, 520C, 520B, 520A, 520, 521, 705, 706, 779 and 807.

Consumers can return the dietary supplements for a refund or get more information by calling Atlas Operations at 800-466-4444, UPI reported.
