SINGAPORE - One new illegal sexual enhancement product was detected and more than 36,000 units of illegal sexual enhancement drugs seized when the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) took part in the 7th Operation Pangea, a global enforcement operation coordinated by Interpol from May 13 to 20, 2014.
According to a statement from the HSA, it is the largest haul of illegal sexual enhancement drugs sold online, amounting to an estimated street value of over $400,000.
The statement added that during intensified checks this week where online platforms were screened to identify illegal health products being sold in Singapore, 10 persons were found to have contravened the Medicines Act, Poisons Act or Health Products Act.
HSA seized over 56,000 units of illegal health products, consisting of sexual enhancement drugs, contact lenses, cosmetic products and slimming products.
Of these, more than 36,000 units were illegal sexual enhancement drugs which were found through HSA's laboratory testing to contain potent western medicinal ingredients, some of which were not declared on the products' labels.
Amongst these products are:
i) Black Deity, detected to contain sildenafil and tadalafil;
ii) Bull's Genital Male sexual stimulant, detected to contain chloramphenicol and sildenafil;
iii) Red Cialis Viagra, detected to contain tadalafil.
HSA's investigations revealed that these products were sourced from overseas.
Of these three products, this is the first time HSA has detected Black Deity being sold in Singapore.
HSA strongly advises those who are holding on to these products to stop taking them immediately.
