Health Canada warning on sex product

Health Canada says it seized a sexual enhancement product from a B.C. store which was found to contain undeclared amounts of sildenafil, used to treat erectile dysfunction.

Health Canada says it seized a sexual enhancement product from a B.C. store which was found to contain undeclared amounts of sildenafil, used to treat erectile dysfunction.

Tibet Babao was removed from the Happy Paradise Adult Store in Burnaby, B.C.

Sildenafil should only be available by prescription and be used under the supervision of a health-care practitioner, Health Canada says.

The warning comes just over a month after other sexual enhancement products were removed from the same store.

Back in mid-June, Health Canada seized products from the store and from the Male and Female Harmony retail shops in Richmond and Burnaby, B.C.

The department also found "undeclared prescription medication" in several products in those stores.
