Chinese distilleries added Viagra to alcohol for "health-preserving qualities"

Two Chinese distilleries are under investigation after it was discovered they added Viagra to spirits and sold them to customers claiming the drinks had "health-preserving qualities," the BBC reports.

Chinese authorities seized more than 5,300 bottles of alcohol as well as packets of Sildenafil — another name for anti-impotence drug Viagra — in the city of Liuzhou.

According to Lizhou's Food and Drug Administration (link translated from Chinese), an inspection found Sildenafil, Tadalafil (sold under the name Cialis, also an anti-impotence drug) as well as other "prohibited substances" in three brands of baijiu liquor — a strong, distilled spirit that's popular in China. The value of the seized goods is approximately 700,000 yuan or $113,000.

Under China's law, the distilleries' owners may be charged with selling poisonous and harmful food.

Food safety remains a big concern in China; in 2008, milk tainted with poisonous chemical melamine caused deaths of at least six infants. In July 2015, Chinese authorities discovered 100,000 tons of smuggled frozen meat, some of it decades old.
