(WSPA) – The CDC is urging the public to stop consuming any brand of kratom in any form due to the risk of Salmonella contamination.

This comes after PDX Aromatics recalled their products containing kratom power sold online between January 18 and February 18.

The CDC says that no common brands or suppliers have been identified.

Kratom is sold in many forms including leaves, pills, capsules, powder, and tea.

According to the CDC, 87 cases of Salmonella have been linked to kratom, including four in North Carolina, two in Georgia, and one in South Carolina.

Most people who are infected by Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps within 12-72 hours after being exposed.
