SFA found prescription drug for erectile dysfunction in two food products

SFA warns against two products claiming to boost male sexual performance due to undisclosed tadalafil content. Hunter Honey and Dynamint X pose serious health risks including heart complications and priapism.



SINGAPORE: The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) has issued a cautionary advisory to consumers regarding two food products purported to enhance male sexual performance, following the discovery that they contain tadalafil, a prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction under medical supervision.

In an official statement released on 20 March, the SFA disclosed that Hunter Honey and Dynamint X, marketed as a honey product and candy respectively on various e-commerce platforms, have been found to contain tadalafil, a potent drug that poses serious health risks if consumed without proper medical guidance.

While Hunter Honey boasts natural ingredients such as honey, fenugreek, and cinnamon in its product listings, Dynamint X advertises the inclusion of black maca, also known as Peruvian ginseng.

Notably, neither product discloses the presence of tadalafil on their ingredient lists.

SFA said the indiscriminate use of tadalafil can lead to severe health complications including but not limited to heart attack, stroke, headaches, migraines, and in particular, poses a significant threat to individuals with pre-existing heart conditions.

Furthermore, individuals on heart medications containing nitrates are at risk of experiencing dangerously low blood pressure.

A particularly concerning side effect of tadalafil misuse is priapism, a painful and prolonged erection that can result in tissue damage and require immediate medical intervention.

Under Singaporean law, the sale and distribution of unsafe food items containing prohibited or potent substances carry severe penalties.

Offenders may face fines of up to S$5,000 for a first offence, with subsequent violations potentially resulting in imprisonment for up to three months, a fine of up to S$10,000, or both.

The SFA strongly advises consumers to refrain from purchasing or consuming Hunter Honey and Dynamint X, and urges anyone who may have already consumed these products to seek medical attention promptly if they experience any adverse effects.

For further inquiries or to report the sale of such products, consumers are encouraged to contact the SFA via their official channels.

Do anyone agree those fines imposed on unhygienic food preparation, like presence of E coli, or like cockroaches within premises, that one recently read about attracted fines reportedly amounting to couple of 1000s of dollars.

Truly truly amazing when one consider the risk and dangers of mass food poisoning that occurs, huge sums of money for hospital stays, med remedies – relative to the $1000s of daily takings.

This is A HUGE MOCKERY of law enforcements. How is it weighted – explode ones brains when trying to understand the penalty rational.
