RECALL NOTICE: “Mojo Nights,” “Mojo Nights for Her” [Updated]

Please be advised that a recall notice has been issued (FDA notice here) for two products called, respectively, "Mojo Nights" and "Mojo Nights for Her," on the grounds that at least one of them contains certain "undeclared active ingredients":

Mojo Nights and Mojo Nights for Her: Recall – Undeclared Drug Ingredient

AUDIENCE: Consumer

ISSUE: Evol Nutrition Associates, Inc./Red Dawn (“Evol Nutrition”) notified the public of a nationwide recall of all lots of two dietary supplement products distributed by the company under the names Mojo Nights and Mojo Nights for Her to the consumer level. Testing by the FDA revealed the presence of undeclared tadalafil and sildenafil in Mojo Nights (Evol Nutrition is also recalling Mojo Nights for Her). Tadalafil and sildenafil are active ingredients of FDA-approved drugs for Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making Mojo Nights an unapproved new drug.

These undeclared active ingredients may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs (such as nitroglycerin) and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. 

BACKGROUND: These two products were distributed nationwide via retail stores and internet sales between July 2011 and July 2012. 

RECOMMENDATION: Consumers who have the recalled product in their possession should stop using the products immediately. Customers with stock of the recalled product should destroy it or return for a refund. Evol Nutrition is notifying its customers by certified mail.

In case you didn't recognize them, tadalafil and sildenafil are the active ingredients in Cialis® and Viagra® respectively, so a product that contains undisclosed and unknown amounts of both of them could potentially be a real eye-opener. Although I suppose calling the product "Mojo Nights" in addition to sounding very romantic, likely provided at least some indication of its purpose.

Does anyone know whether it was intentional to give a product used to treat erectile dysfunction a name that begins with "Ta-da!"? I'd like to think it was.

Update: The website for this product (titled "Mojo Nights Sex Pill") states that it "works in your system for 2-3 days," which maybe is not surprising if it has both ta-DA!-lafil and sildenafil in it in some unknown amounts. Words that do not appear anywhere on the website: "FDA" and "recall."
