The Singapore Food Agency (SFA) today urged consumers in the country to not purchase or consume a Malaysian food product called ‘KINGU GINSENG CANDY’ as it could lead to adverse health complications.

In a press release, SFA said that the candy was found to contain Tadalafil, a potent prescription medicine used to treat erectile dysfunction.

The press release further revealed that the candy has been marketed on Singaporean e-commerce platforms as a candy with claims of male sexual enhancement effects.

Accordingly, SFA has asked the various e-commerce platforms to remove the listings and issued warnings to the respective sellers to immediately refrain from selling the product.

The Singaporean agency also attached photos of the candy in question and the packaging it comes in, as well as revealed that the product originated from Malaysia.

According to SFA, Tadalafil is a prescription medicine used to treat erectile dysfunction and should only be given under medical supervision.

Furthermore, inappropriate use of the drug is dangerous and can increase the risk of serious adverse effects. These include heart attack, stroke, headache, migraine, irregular heart rate and priapism (painful and exceedingly long erections).

Besides that, Tadalafil can also pose serious risks to certain individuals, especially those with heart-related problems.

Seek medical advice if necessary

For those who have purchased the candy, SFA urged them to not consume it. As for those who have consumed the candy and have concerns about their health, the agency advised them to seek medical advice.

SFA then iterated that consumers should exercise caution and be mindful of the risks associated with consuming food bought from unknown or unverified sources and are advised to seek more information before making any purchase.

While the cautionary statement was meant for Singaporean citizens, it is best for consumers in Malaysia to heed the warning too as the potential adverse health effects are simply not worth the risk.
