Man sues over erection drink

A man is suing the maker of a health drink, claiming the vitamin-enriched beverage gave him an erection that would not subside.
Christopher Woods said he had to be hospitalised because the erection would not go down.
His lawsuit said he bought the health drink Boost Plus made by the Swiss-based Novartis pharmaceutical company, at a US drugstore on June 5, 2004.


Novartis' Boost Plus Web site describes the drink as "a great tasting, high calorie, nutritionally complete oral supplement for people who require extra energy and protein in a limited volume," in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.
Woods' court papers say he woke up the next morning "with an erection that would not subside" and sought treatment of the condition, called severe priapism.
They say Woods, 29, from New York underwent surgery that day for implantation of a Winter shunt, which moves blood from one area to another.
The lawsuit says Woods had problems that days later required a hospital visit and penile artery embolisation, a way of closing blood vessels.
Closing off some blood flow prevents engorgement of the penis with blood and lessens the likelihood of an erection.
Woods' lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, names Novartis Consumer Health Inc. as a defendant.
A spokeswoman for the company, Brandi Robinson, said the company was aware of the lawsuit but did not comment on pending litigation.
Woods' lawyer was not immediately available for comment.

Maybe he's mad because his drink didn't come with the "oral supplement"

And his last name is 'Wood'!

Anyway, I'd sure be embarrassed to have a phalinx sticking out all day!

Maybe he's suing for the embarassment it may have caused him.

You have to be careful using words like "oral", and "come" on a topic like this.

Where does one buy this stuff again?

Wonder why they couldn't put a little valve in that artery that he could turn on and off as required?.....

Were I the President and CEO of Novartis, I would immediately call a huge press conference, using every means at my disposal to attract attention, and publically apologize to the gentleman in question.........then triple the price of the product and put on three shifts a day producing it....

Ever hear of Viagra?
