The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has been notified by the US Food and Drug Administration that GL Holding is voluntarily recalling six lots of Green Lumber 2-, 4-, and 10-capsule packages purchased on or before August 10, 2019, to the consumer level. This recall was due to the FDA’s analysis which found one Lot of Green Lumber distributed between June and August 2019 to be tainted with Tadalafil.
The Green Lumber Product is marketed as dietary supplements for male sexual enhancement and is packaged in 2-, 4-, and 10-Capsule blister packs.
Consumption of a product with undeclared Tadalafil may pose a risk to consumers who take prescription medications containing nitrates (such as nitroglycerin). The combination of Tadalafil and nitrates may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels which can be life-threatening.
Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates and maybe the population most likely to be affected.
The details of the affected products are as follows;
Product Name: Green Lumber Dietary Supplements for Male Sexual Enhancement
Manufacturers Name: GL Holdings
The Green Lumber Lot That Tested Positive for Tadalafil was sold between June 10 and August 10, 2019. Some of the blister packs are marked with “XC06 EXP 06/2022.” and has one of the following UPC codes:
2 Packs: X0020TSV4R
4 Packs: X0020TRRHJ

Other lots that are being recalled were sold between April 1, 2018, and June 10, 2019, and may have a different UPC code on the package. Some of these blister packages are marked with one of the following “XC12EXP12/2020,” “XC06EXP06/2021,” “XC10EXP10/2021,” “XC02EXP02/2022,” or “XC04EXP04/2022.”
