Blue Fantasy capsules

Safety advisory

25 March 2014

Blue Fantasy capsules pose a serious risk to your health and should not be taken.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has tested Blue Fantasy capsules and found that they contain:

  • Blue Fantasy capsules packagingthe undeclared prescription substance sildenafil despite the package claiming the product to be all natural.
  • consumers are advised that sildenafil is a prescription-only substance (which is the active ingredient in Viagra).

The supply of Blue Fantasy capsules is illegal.

Blue Fantasy capsules have not been assessed by the TGA for quality, safety or efficacy as required under Australian legislation, and the place of manufacture is not approved by the TGA.

TGA investigations have shown that a number of people in Australia have bought the product online.

Information for consumers

  • Stop taking Blue Fantasy capsules and take any remaining capsules to your local pharmacy for safe disposal.
  • If you have any concerns arising from your use of this product, consult your health care practitioner.

Action the TGA is taking

The TGA is working with Australian Customs and Border Protection Services (Customs) to help stop future shipments of Blue Fantasy capsules from entering Australia.

If these capsules are found at the border by Customs they will be seized and destroyed.

The TGA is advising consumers to exercise extreme cautionwhen purchasing medicines from unknown overseas Internet sites. Products purchased over the Internet:

  • may contain undisclosed and potentially harmful ingredients
  • may not meet the same standards of quality, safety and efficacy as those approved by the TGA for supply in Australia.
