Recall, Wefun Supplement, Hidden Drug

Recall Issued, Hidden Ingredient Present

A recall of 300 boxes of the male energy supplement WEFUN has been issued due to a hidden ingredient in the drug. The supplement, touted as a safe and natural testosterone booster, contains undeclared Sildenafil, a substance not approved for this use by the FDA. When taken with other medications, Sildenafil can cause serious interactions, including death. As of the writing of this notice, no adverse effects have yet been reported.

When purchasing supplements online, consumers should take great care to research the ingredients and company thoroughly. This is not the first recall of this kind. In February 2023, we reported a recall of a similar supplement, PrimeZEN Black 6000, which also contained Sildenafil. Men who require supplementation for energy, testosterone supplementation, assistance with erectile dysfunction, or any other health concern should seek medical advice from a licensed physician.

Reason for Recall

Sildenafil is a substance approved by the FDA for use in certain drugs, including those to treat erectile dysfunction.

  • Hypotension (low blood pressure)
