An energy drink promising naturally enhanced sexual performance has been banned in Australia after authorities discovered it actually contained erectile dysfunction drugs.

An Australian energy drink that promised to improve sexual performance has been banned for actually fulfilling its marketing promise, because it was actually full of erectile dysfunction drugs.

According to Gawker, the MosKa energy drink claimed to be a "100% natural traditional sex food.” It also purported to contain no chemicals or drugs, but Australian authorities found that it actually contained vardenafil, better known as Levitra. Well, that’ll get the job done. It’s not even remotely a natural and drug-free food, though, and dispensing erectile dysfunction drugs without a prescription can be dangerous. Levitra can have dangerous side effects in certain people, and can cause unsafe reactions when used in conjunction with other drugs.

MosKa says it did not know about the drug and has issued an apology on its website, claiming that a manufacturer added the drug without authorization.

“We have terminated the supplier and are in the process of producing the product with our own formulation to ensure no hidden ingredients,” the company said. “All our future products will be tested for compliance with all regulatory requirements.”
