A variety of sex products suspected of being counterfeit by the Health Ministry has been seized at the Erostore in Rehov Solomon 3 in Tel Aviv. Working with the police, the ministry’s enforcement and supervision branch seized the “prescription” drugs and “supplements” including a large number of pills that are “liable to endanger health.
The authorities also took a large number of unidentified pills whose import and sale here is not approved.
Among the labelled products that were seized were Tiger King, Sharkessence, Vigour, VigRX Plus, MaxMan, Kamagra, Filagra, Vidalista, Fildena, Sildalist, Delay spray, Spanish Fly and Super Dooz 34000 spray.
The pills, they said, are liable to contain chemicals such as sildenfil or tadalafil, which are active ingredients in the erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra and Cialis.
The marketing and use of these drugs outside pharmacies and without a doctor’s prescription are liable to cause severe side effects that harm the public health, said the ministry, which sent samples to its labs for examination.
A police complaint was filed against Erostore.
