FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 24, 2013 - Williamstown, New Jersey – Haute Health, LLC is voluntarily recalling all lots of Virilis Pro, PHUK and Prolifta at the retail and consumer level.

Sildenafil has the potential to interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to unsafe levels.
