West Coast Nutritionals, LTD. Issues Worldwide Recall of Firminite, Extra Strength Instant Hot Rod and Libidron due to Undeclared Tadalafil

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received the following news release regarding the recall of Firminite, Extra Strength Instant Hot Rod, and Libidron capsules to the consumer level.  The products contain undeclared Tadalafil which can pose a serious risk to health.
