PDX Aromatics Issues Second Expanded Recall of Kratom Products for Possible Salmonella

PDX Aromatics, doing business as Kraken Kratom, Phytoextractum, and Soul Speciosa is issuing a second expanded recall of their products because they may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The company is aware of four confirmed cases of Salmonella associated with the consumption of red and white vein products.

PDX Aromatics Kratom Recall

You can see the long list of recalled products, with the lot numbers, product names, brand, and net weight, at the FDA web site. The recalled products include Red Maeng Da Powder, Super Green Malaysian Kratom Powder, Thai Kratom Powder (Green Vein), Thai Kratom Powder (Green Vein), and OG Bali Powder, among others.

The expanded recall includes red vein powder and capsule products shipped between 12/1/2017 and 3/8/2018 and certain green vein powder and capsule products that were shipped between 9/18/2017 and 11/1/2017 and between 2/9/2018 and 3/8/2018. These products were sold directly to internet customers in the U.S. through the company websites. Recalled products were also sold to two customers in the United Kingdom, and to one customer in each of the following countries: Ireland, Japan, Norway, and Turkey.

There is a multistate Salmonella outbreak linked to kratom containing products that is ongoing in the United States at this time. As of March 14, 2018, 87 people are infected with the outbreak strains. The strains of Salmonella bacteria in this outbreak are Javiana, Okatie, Thompson, and I 4,[5],12:b:-. Twenty-seven of these patients have been hospitalized because their illnesses are so serious.

According to the FDA, testing by the California Department of Public Health found Salmonella bacteria in an open sample of a kratom product made by PDX Aromatics. And testing by the FDA found Salmonella in products that were purchased from that company. We don’t know if the four cases of Salmonella that have been reported to the company are part of this outbreak.

If you have purchased these products, do not consume them. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or contact the retailer for return instructions.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include a fever, nausea, abdominal pains and cramps, vomiting, chills, and diarrhea that may be bloody. If you have been experiencing these symptoms and you have consumed the recalled products, see your doctor.
