Getting up is a little easier

Did you read the latest news late last week?

With this headline – “Coffee with Viagra-like ingredient recalled after FDA discovery” – it was hard for this middle-aged man to pass reading the internet article.

Apparently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that a company is voluntarily recalling one of its coffee products that contains an ingredient structurally like sildenafil, the active ingredient in the erectile-dysfunction drug Viagra.

A similar recall took place last year and earlier this year in May.  The coffee product recalled last year had the clever name of “Stiff Bull.”

It’s fair to say a similar product will find its way to the market that you may one day innocently purchase.  So, don’t be surprised if after having your morning cup of coffee in bed one morning that you discover getting up is a little easier.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
