The FDA and multiple companies are recalling multiple products sold under the brand names Thumbs Up, Red, Shogun-X, Krazy Night, 69Mode Blue, PremierZen, and SupremeZen.  These tainted products all have undeclared phosphodiesterase compounds in them including sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil.  These compounds are typically used for treatment of male erectile dysfunction and can product dangerous and life-threatening reactions in those also taking nitrate compounds such as nitroglycerin.  If you bought these products, return them to the purchase source which is often online.  For more information, check the references on my YouTube channel to find specific contact information for the various sources.
