FDA analysis has found the products to be tainted with Sildenafil and Tadalafil, which are the active ingredients in two FDA-approved prescription drugs used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), as well as Desmethyl Carbodenafil which is structurally similar to sildenafil. The presence of Sildenafil, Tadalafil and or Desmethyl Carbodenafil in Rhino 7 Platinum 5000, Papa Zen 3300, Fifty Shades 6000, and Grande X 5800, renders them unapproved drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established and, therefore, subject to recall.

Among the adult male population who are most likely to use these products, adult males who use nitrates for cardiac conditions are the most at risk from these products. These products are considered tainted and FDA has received adverse event reports from consumers who have purchased these products.
