The product contains yogurt derived from milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. While yogurt is declared on the front label, the product is missing an ingredient list identifying milk as a sub-ingredient.

The marinated skinless chicken item was produced on September 16, 2015. The following product is subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]

  • 2-lb. sealed trays of “Green Meadows PREMIUM MEAT CUTS Marinated Skinless Chicken Bone-In Cubed Chicken in 23% Yogurt-Curry Marinade” with a use-by date/Case code date of September 30, 2015.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — September 25, 2015 — Houston, TX — TF Supplements of Houston, TX, is voluntarily recalling the following product to the consumer level: RHINO 7 packaged in a bottle containing six (6) capsules WITH LOT# K824B719-P and in a single (1) count capsule hang card with LOT# SU-5102617*RP at the consumer level. Lot numbers are on the back top right of the (1) count and on the side of the (6) count bottle. FDA analysis found these products to contain undeclared desmethyl carbondenafil and dapoxetine. Desmethyl carbondenafil is a phosphodiesterase PDE-5 inhibitor which is a class of drugs used to treat male erectile dysfunction, making these products unapproved new drugs. Dapoxetine is an active ingredient not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Desmethyl carbondenafil may pose a threat to consumers because this PDE-5 inhibitor may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels that can be life threatening. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates.

Dapoxetine has not been approved by the FDA and therefore its safety or efficacy has not been established. Chemically, dapoxetine belongs to a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) used to treat depression. Studies have shown that antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults when compared to placebo. Therefore, consuming these products presents a health risk which could be life threatening.

TF Supplements has received no reports of illness associated with these products to date. (more…)
