The Washington State Department of Health announced Friday that the Salmonella outbreak linked to kratom is growing.

No common brands or suppliers of kratom products have been identified at this time, although some brands distributed by PDX Aromatics have been recalled.

Salmonella: Marler Clark, The Food Safety Law Firm, is the nation's leading law firm representing victims of Salmonella outbreaks.

CDC said the same strains of S. Okatie and S. Thompson were found in samples of kratom and those from ill people. Some have tried kratom as an alternative form of pain relief, while others used it as an addiction substitute to wean off opioids. "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is coordinating this multi-state Salmonella outbreak which has sickened at least 87 people in at least 35 states". It can also lead to more serious infections.

The FDA is now still researching kratom and its effects on the body. Three samples sold online tested positive for salmonella earlier this month.

MDH and CDC recommend that people not consume kratom in any form because it could be contaminated with Salmonella and could make people sick. Symptoms of salmonella can begin 12 to 72 hours after a person is infected. Health officials in other states have identified three strains of salmonella bacteria in various types of kratom.
