FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Freeport, NY – August 21, 2009 – Nutracoastal Trading LLC announced today that it is expanding its July 28th, 2009 voluntary nationwide recall of the company's dietary supplement product sold under the following name: STEAM.

The Company has found by lab analysis that Lot 90260 contains Tadalafil, an active ingredient of an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction (ED), making STEAM DIETARY SUPPLEMENT an unapproved drug. The active drug ingredient is not listed on the product label. The undeclared ingredient may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. Additionally, the product may cause side effects, such as headaches and flushing.

The recalled product listed below was distributed in white plastic bottles to retail stores nationwide.

Brand Name    Size                            Lot       EXP.      UPC
