FDA warning on penis enlargers

August 24, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Penis enlargers and constricting rings to maintain erections have inadequate directions for use and can have harmful effects, from rupturing blood vessels to causing gangrene of the penis, the Food and Drug Administration said in guidance to import inspectors.

"Basically, the labeling of these devices falsely states or implies they will treat impotence, prolong erection, and increase the dimensions of the penis," the FDA said.
