(CNN) — Major League Baseball reportedly has warned its players that over-the-counter sex supplements may contain prohibited ingredients that would result in failed performance enhancing drugs tests.
ESPN acquired a memo sent to its 30 clubs by the league officer.
The memo states in part that”these products tend to be contaminated with prohibited and unsafe ingredients,” ESPN documented.
CNN asked the Major League Baseball Players Association and Major League Baseball . The league said it doesn’t make memos.
The use of over-the-counter performance enhancement tablets — commonly located at convenience stores — is more prevalent among baseball players, ESPN reported citing unnamed sources.
The US Food and Drug Administration has cautioned the public in the past about using enhancement solutions.
Donald D. Ashleydirector of the Office of Compliance in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, told CNN last year that”that the FDA was combating the retail sale of penile enhancement drug products which are often misrepresented as dietary supplements and that contain hidden and potentially harmful active drug components.”
