M'sian Ginseng Candy Found To Contain Erectile Dysfunction Drug, Discovered By SG Food Agency

Customers are cautioned not to buy or consume the "Kingu Ginseng Candy" by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) after it was discovered that the product was adulterated with tadalafil, a strong prescription drug used to treat erectile dysfunction.


According to Free Malaysia Today, the substance, which is Malaysian-made, according to the agency, has been sold as a candy on a number of regional e-commerce sites with promises of improving male libido.


According to a statement released today, "SFA has worked with a number of online e-commerce platforms to take down the product's listings and has warned the individual sellers to stop selling the product right now.


"SFA will not hesitate to take stern enforcement action against anyone who sells and supplies food products that are found to be adulterated with banned substances or potent ingredients as these would be unsafe food."


It stated that tadalafil should only be administered under medical supervision and that using it inappropriately increases the risk of major side effects such as migraines, heart attacks, heart attacks, headaches, abnormal heart rates, and priapism, which is characterized by painful and protracted erections.


Furthermore, it stated that tadalafil might induce potentially fatal low blood pressure in people with heart problems and offers major dangers to those using nitrate-containing cardiac drugs.


Section 15 of Singapore's Sale of Food Act prohibits the sale of hazardous food. For the first offense, anybody found guilty of breaking any of the Act's requirements faces a punishment of up to S$5,000 (RM17,400).


If found guilty again, they risk a fine of up to S$10,000 (RM34,900), a maximum sentence of three months in prison, or both.
