More kratom products recalled for salmonella – including at least four Zakah Life, products:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a mandatory recall for kratom products manufactured by Triangle Pharmanaturals, LLC. It was the first time the agency had issued a mandatory recall order to protect Americans from contaminated food products. Now another kratom product is being recalled because of potential salmonella contamination.
Zakah Life, LLC of Ankeny, Iowa, is recalling Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom powder, Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom powder, Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom capsules, and Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom capsules with expiration dates prior to 01/01/2023 because they have the potential of being contaminated with salmonella. These products were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders.
Mitragyna speciosa, commonly known as kratom, is a plant that grows naturally in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea. The FDA is advising consumers to avoid kratom and kratom-containing products. Since January 2017, the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have found that kratom caused close to 200 cases of salmonella illnesses in 41 states.
In the most recent incident, the potential for contamination was noted after laboratory testing revealed the presence of salmonella in some packages of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom powder, Red Powder Vein Bali Kratom powder, Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom capsules, and Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom capsules. Production of the product has been suspended while the FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.
