Texas Company Recalls Boner Coffee

Posted By on Fri, Jul 21, 2017 at 12:08 PM

Bestherbs Coffee, a Texas-based coffee company, has issued a voluntary recall on its “New of Kopi Jantan Tradisional Herbs Coffee” for containing an ingredient similar to Viagra.

According to the FDA, the instant coffee contains desmethyl carbodenafil — a chemical closely resembling the active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction pill. When the "New of Kopi" coffee was first sold in July 2014, it was marketed as a male-enhancement coffee, however, the Viagra-like ingredient was not disclosed, which the FDA says, could interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs and lower a person's blood pressure to a dangerous levels.

The FDA also noted that traces of undeclared milk were found in the coffee product, which could severely affect those with milk allergies or sensitivities.

The Grand Prairie coffee company is notifying customers through phone calls and the FDA advises consumers contact their doctors if they are experience any issues or side effects related to using Viagra.
