EG Labs, the maker of Viapro, 375mg capsules, has warned consumers not to buy the product because one lot was found to contain a potentially harmful, undeclared ingredient, thio-methisosildenafil.

Patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take products with nitrates.
