Blue Square Market Inc. of North Huntingdon, PA, is recalling "Kaboom Actions Strip 12 Pack" and LiDa DaiDaiHua to the user level after FDA analysis revealed the products contain undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredients. Kaboom was found to contain sulfoaildenafil and LiDa DaiDaiHua was found to contain sibutramine and phenolphthalein. Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010 due to increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the United States. Sulfoaildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) which could lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. These undeclared ingredients make these products unapproved new drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established. At this time, no illnesses or injuries have been reported to Blue Square Market Inc. in connection with these products.
Kaboom Actions Strips are marketed for men’s vitality and LiDa DaiDaiHua is marketed for weight loss. Kaboom Actions Strips was purchased from the manufacturer Nutrology USA, LLC.
