I'd check System -> Permissions -> Blocks and ensure the blocks you're using have a status of Allowed.

This is case in point why it's essential to install security patches on a staging environment prior to porting over to production.

Take the following actions to remedy the situation:

  1. Revert the patch
  2. Clone your production site onto a staging environment
  3. Install the patch on the staging environment.
  4. Debug until functionality is 100% as expected.

In this instance, it would seem like the product block you're expecting is no longer there due to it not being whitelisted.
