Salmonella In Kratom, Like Use Of The Herb, Exceeds FDA Expectations

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says prior to investigating a "large outbreak of salmonellosis," FDA determined there are no proven medical uses for kratom and that it is inherently addictive and can cause harm. "The subsequent findings of this investigation only strengthen that public health recommendation. … Now, in addition to those risks, we can conclude that there may be a high proportion of kratom and kratom-containing products contaminated with salmonella," he says.
