Zakah Life, LLC of Ankeny, Iowa, is recalling the following Kratom products (Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom powder, Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom powder, Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom capsules, and Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom capsules) with expiration dates prior to 01/01/2023 because they have the potential of being contaminated with 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 aneurisms), endocarditis, and arthritis.
The recalled Kratom products were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders.
The affected products, lot, best by dates and packaging are as follows:
|Product Name||Quantity and Dosage Form||Packaging||Lot #|
|Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom Powder||100 g||4 oz. black and clear organic rice paper bag containing 100g of kratom||BSG010118|

|Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom Capsules||90 capsules||275 cc plastic bottles||PR050118|
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The potential for contamination was noted after laboratory testing revealed the presence of Salmonella in some packages of Super Green Maeng Da Kratom powder, Red Powder Vein Bali Kratom powder, Super Green Maeng Da Premium Kratom capsules, and Powerful Red Vein Bali Premium Kratom capsules.
Production of the product has been suspended while the FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.
