The United States: FDA orders mandatory recall for kratom products due to risk of Salmonella: Triangle Pharmanaturals LLC (English Only)
 
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announces that it has issued a mandatory recall order for all food products containing powdered kratom manufactured, processed, packed, or held by Triangle Pharmanaturals LLC, after several were found to contain Salmonella. The agency took this action after the company failed to cooperate with the FDA’s request to conduct a voluntary recall. 

The FDA is advising consumers to discard the products that are part of the mandatory recall, which include, but are not limited to: 
- Raw Form Organics Maeng Da Kratom Emerald Green 
- Raw Form Organics Maeng Da Kratom Ivory White 
- Raw Form Organics Maeng Da Kratom Ruby Red 

The FDA understands that Triangle Pharmanaturals may manufacture, process, pack and/or hold additional brands of food products containing powdered kratom, including powder and encapsulated powder forms. 

In this instance, two samples of kratom products manufactured by Triangle Pharmanaturals of Las Vegas, Nevada, sold through the retail location Torched Illusions in Tigard, Oregon and collected by the Oregon Public Health Division, tested positive for Salmonella, as did four additional samples of various types of kratom product associated with the firm collected by the FDA. 

Please refer to the following website in FDA for details: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm603536.htm 

In Hong Kong, the above products are not registered pharmaceutical products. There is also no registered pharmaceutical product containing kratom.
