A health food store named Beit Teva in Jerusalem’s Malha shopping mall was raised on Sunday by Health Ministry inspectors who seized allegedly counterfeit “anti-impotence” drugs and other products that had been smuggled into the country.

Called “Tiger King,” “Shark King” and “Ping Pong” pills, the products in the past were examined by ministry experts and found to have sildenafil and tadalafil - chemicals that comprise prescription-only Viagra and Cialis pills to treat impotence.

However, the products seized in the health food store, the ministry said, “are not approved by the ministry for import and marketing, and their use is liable to endanger public health.”
