The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control have been informed that the Qatar Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), on 19th of February, 2018 warned against the purchase and consumption of Wales Golden Honey and Macum Eqimedyumly Honey. The products contain harmful chemical substances such as Vardenafil, Homosildenafil and Sildenafil.

The Ministry stated that the harmful substances were not declared on the products’ labels thus posing risk to the life and health of those who have medical conditions against the use of the undeclared substances. Wales Golden Honey is produced by Jordans’ Al-Kaaba Company and Eqimedyumly Macum is produced by the Turkish company Therma.

Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra, a prescription drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction which could trigger a sharp drop in blood pressure when used in combination with prescription drugs containing nitroglycerine, commonly found in medications for diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease and hypertension.

Vardenafil is another selective PDE-5 inhibitor that is approved for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It is effective in a broad spectrum of underlying conditions of patients.

Homosildenafil (also known as methyl-sildenafil) is a synthetic drug which acts as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor. It is an analog of sildenafil and vardenafil. Homosildenafil is identified as an adulterant in sex enhancement products and was more recently detected in dietary supplements.

Importers, Distributors, and Retailers in possession of these products are to submit to the nearest NAFDAC office.
