Impotence pills seized in London lock-up raid
LONDON (Reuters) - Unlicensed impotence pills worth 350,000 pounds have been seized in a raid in West London by officers of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
Kamagra, Lovegra and Apcali, used to treat male impotence, were recovered in the raid on a lock-up in Uxbridge, west London, the MHRA said on Friday.
No arrest were made following Wednesday's raid, but investigations were continuing.
Danny Lee-Frost, head of the MHRA's criminal operations unit, said the drugs' safety could not be assured as they have not undergone proper testing.
"The type of medicines we seized cannot be guaranteed to be acceptably safe because they have not gone through the correct licensing regulatory process," he said.
"At best these medicines could be a waste of money, at worst they could be severely detrimental to your health."
