Announcement

PDX Aromatics, DBA Kraken Kratom, Phytoextractum, and Soul Speciosa, is expanding the scope of their 3/9/2018 voluntary recall of certain kratom white vein powder and capsule products and red vein powder products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The expanded recall is being initiated in response to additional positive findings of Salmonella associated with Aromatics’ products following the FDA initial investigation.

Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The expanded recall includes white vein and red vein powder and capsule products shipped between 1/18/2018 and 3/8/2018.

The expanded recalled products were sold directly to internet consumers in the US through the company websites http://phytoextractum.comdisclaimer icon; http://soulspeciosa.comdisclaimer icon; and http://krakenkratom.comdisclaimer icon.
