nzherald.co.nz – A man was caught in an unfortunate situation after drinking an energy drink, leading to production of the product being suspended and an investigation launched.
The man, from Uganda, experienced profuse sweating, an abnormal heartbeat and a prolonged erection after consuming an SX Energy Natural Power Drink.
Tests have since found the product contains sildenafil citrate, better known as Viagra.
Revin Zambia, a Zambian firm, produce the energy drink which is exported around the region, including to Uganda.
The company’s general manager said production was stopped on Tuesday, coinciding with the launch of an internal investigation.
“We have allowed the government or any of its agencies to conduct their own investigations as well, but as far as we know, the drink does not contain any drug,” he told news outlet AFP.
The energy drink had been in production in the city of Ndola, north of the capital Lusaka, since last year.
Please imagine grabbing a energy drink before work to get that lil extra pep in your step so you can conquer the work day and instead you end up with a boner for 4 hours..try explaining that one away to HR. Did the people behind this horny beverage just throw a bunch of ingredients together blindly or did they know what they were doing and just figured they were helping some dudes out?? If this guy is smart he’s already prepping his lawsuit.
Also I need a sample of this sent to me…for research purposes of course.
