FDA is warning consumers not to use products marketed by Kratom NC, of Wilmington, North Carolina, due to microbial contamination.
FDA laboratory analysis of Kratom NC’s raw materials and finished products identified various microorganisms, including Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter spp. and Escherichia sp. These organisms may cause serious illnesses in vulnerable patient populations.
FDA contacted Kratom NC on June 14 to recommend the company recall all of its products currently on the market. However, the company has not taken any action to recall these potentially dangerous products.
