SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah man faces federal charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and money laundering for his role in manufacturing and selling erectile dysfunction supplements that were marketed as "100 percent natural."

Authorities say the products contained Viagra-related drugs that have been linked to serious health problems.

The indictment against Kelly Dean Harvey and his Utah-based company was unsealed earlier this month. It says Harvey imported the product from China and sold it under the names "Stiff Nights," "Size Matters," "Natural Wow" and "OMG."

The FDA began warning consumers in 2009 that such products may contain substances that can cause health problems. Authorities say Harvey was aware of these alerts but conspired to misbrand the drug to avoid federal regulation.

Attorneys representing Harvey did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
