PRAGUE — PRAGUE (AP) — Customs officials in the Czech Republic say they have seized almost 200,000 fake erectile dysfunction pills.

Czech Customs Administration spokeswoman Sarka Miskovska says a total of 194,300 counterfeit Viagra and Cialis pills were seized recently at Prague's Vaclav Havel airport. Miskovska says they arrived in two shipments from an unspecified country in southern Asia.

In a statement Tuesday, the administration said it was a record seizure and the value of the original Eli Lilly and Co.'s Cialis and Pfizer Inc.'s Viagra pills would have been 87 million koruna ($4.5 million).

It is not clear whether the pills were meant for the Czech Republic or another country. No further details were available. The customs office said it is still investigating the incident.
