Argentina acts on counterfeit erectile dysfunction devices - "some imported legally":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Argentina's medical products regulatory agency, ANMAT, has issued an alert regarding the discovery of counterfeit erectile dysfunction devices on the market. The agency reports that some of the devices involved were manufactured locally, but that others appear to have been imported legally, even though they were not registered, exposing a possible weakness in import controls. It has thus raised the issue with the Customs agency. The COMFER consumer protection agency has also been alerted, since the products are being marketed with "therapeutic claims that have no scientific basis", while lacking warnings regarding risks and the need for medical supervision.
