Date:7/27/2010

Unapproved devices are adulterated and misbranded; safety and efficacy not established

SILVER SPRING, Md., July 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Marshals today seized $346,954.43 worth of FastSize Extender devices and FastSize EQM™ Erectile Quality Monitor devices, as well as component parts used in the manufacture of the FastSize Extender. The FastSize Extender and the FastSize EQM™ Erectile Quality Monitor are manufactured and distributed by FastSize, LLC of Aliso Viejo, Calif.

The FastSize Extender and the FastSize EQM™ Erectile Quality Monitor are misbranded and adulterated because they, among other things, are unapproved and were manufactured under conditions that did not meet current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) requirements. The seizure warrant was issued by the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

The FastSize EQM™ Erectile Quality Monitor device was promoted to measure penile axial rigidity (intercavernosal pressure) and to aid in the diagnosis of health related issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. The FastSize Extender device was promoted to gain length, girth, and overall penile health improvement and to correct penile deformity caused by Peyronie's disease. Because the devices are intended to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat or prevent diseases, they are subject to the regulatory authority of the FDA. The devices do not have approved applications for premarket approval for these uses.

During a recent inspection of the FastSize LLC manufacturing facility, inspectors noted significant deviations from cGMP regulations. Additionally, the devices are not properly listed with the FDA as required by law, and the firm failed or refused to furnish materials or information regarding the devices to federal inspectors as required under the Medical Device Reporting regulation.
