The FDA is cautioning consumers this week after sending warning letters to four US companies that produce honey-based products containing prescription drugs for sexual enhancement.
Laboratory testing by the FDA confirmed that some of the products – such as Secret Miracle Royal Honey for Her, X RATED HONEY FOR MEN, and Dose Vital Honey for Men – contained sildenafil and tadalafil, which are the active ingredients in Viagra and Cialis.
"Tainted honey-based products like these are dangerous because consumers are likely unaware of the risks associated with the hidden prescription drug ingredients in these products and how they may interact with other drugs and supplements they may take," FDA Associate Commissioner for Regulatory Affairs Judy McMeekin said in a statement.
