U-Prosta Natural Products Recalled Nationwide


Ottawa, ON: "U-Prosta Natural support for prostate health" is being recalled in Canada by Sunnylife International Inc. after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found the product contains undeclared terazosin hydrochloride, which is a prescription drug used to treat high blood pressure and enlargement of the prostate gland, and could cause serious health effects. Prescription drugs should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare practitioner. "U-Prosta" is promoted as a natural health product used for prostate health.

Sunnylife International Inc. is based in Richmond, B.C. and has indicated that this product was sold at various natural health retail outlets located in western Canada. "U-Prosta" is also being voluntarily recalled in the U.S., by USA Far Ocean Group Inc.

Washington, DC: USA Far Ocean Group is conducting a nationwide recall of the Company's supplement product sold under the name "U-Prosta Natural support for prostate health". The Company has been informed by representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that lab analysis by FDA of U-Prosta samples found the product contains terazosin, the active ingredient of an FDA-approved drug used to treat Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (enlarged prostate), making U-Prosta an unapproved drug.

The most likely adverse health consequences that could occur with the use of this product would be hypotension, dizziness, or syncope. Patients who are currently being treated with prescription medications for high blood pressure or enlarged prostate would be at increased risk of these events. In these patients, the hypotensive events may be more severe. No illnesses have been reported to the company to date in connection with this product.

The product has been distributed nationwide via retail stores, internet sales and mail order. For a complete list of recalled U-Prosta products, which are packaged in white plastic bottles & 1 capsule blister pack, see the link below.
