Min­istry of Health calls out sex pill vendors

The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL - Kong Meta

THE Min­istry of Health warned on Wed­nes­day that it will act against vendors us­ing Face­book to ad­ver­tise, sell and dis­trib­ute un­reg­is­tered medicines with­out gov­ern­ment ap­proval.

In a se­ries of posts to its Face­book page, the Min­istry of Health named a num­ber of prod­ucts be­ing ad­ver­tised, such as PLUS FORT, Gold Ant USA, and De­vel­oped Sex.

The min­istry urged the pub­lic not to pur­chase the il­licit prod­ucts. It said be­cause they were not reg­is­tered, their ori­gins are un­clear and they weren’t tested to as­sess their ef­fi­cacy or neg­a­tive health effects on users.

“The prod­ucts make you have sex many times,” part of the state­ment read.

The min­istry warned that le­gal ac­tion would be taken against any­one im­port­ing, sell­ing or dis­tribut­ing PLUS FORT or sim­i­larly un­reg­is­tered prod­ucts.

Pov Pisey, a Face­book ven­dor, said she had sold the De­vel­oped Sex sup­ple­ment since 2016 when buy­ers asked for such prod­ucts.

“All prod­ucts like this have neg­a­tive effects. Even us­ing hand lo­tion can be harm­ful,” she said.

Health Min­istry spokesman Ly So­vann could not be reached for com­ment.
