KANSAS CITY, Kansas – A man in Overland Park has been convicted of importing male enhancement drugs and selling them as “herbal remedies.”

Rick Shepard, 60, was sentenced to five years probation in Kansas federal court.

According to his plea, Shepard admitted to importing pharmaceutical grade erectile dysfunction drugs from China.

Shepard admitted to running a business called “Epic Products” when he sold the pills, labeled “Euphoric,” to adult novelty stores in Kansas, Missouri and Colorado.

He marketed the pills as an “all-natural herbal supplement for male enhancement” when they actually contained the prescription drugs Tadalafil and Sildenafil, which are the active ingredients in Viagra and Cialis.

“US consumers are at serious risk when unknowingly exposed to undeclared active pharmaceutical ingredients in products falsely labeled as natural dietary supplements,” said Special Agent in Charge Charles L. Grinstead, Office of Kansas City FDA criminal investigations.

“The FDA remains committed to prosecuting those who endanger the public health of the United States by importing and distributing fraudulent and potentially dangerous products.”
