Badger Botanicals Kratom Recalled

On May 4, 2018, 2018 Badger Botanicals issued a recall of its Green Suma, Red Suma, Green Hulu 2, and Red Hulu 2 kratom dietary supplements because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism that has been linked to fatal infection in young children, frail or elderly adults, and people with weakened immune systems. In healthy adults, Salmonella can produce fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, Salmonella infection 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. In February 2018, the CDC warned consumers not to use kratom in any form as it began investigating an outbreak of illness caused by Salmonella infection associated with the use of kratom.

Recalled Green Suma, Red Suma, Green Hulu 2, and Red Hulu 2 kratom dietary supplements were sold in 250 g pouches, directly to consumers through the company's website from January 1st, 2018 to April l 12th, 2018.

Consumers who have purchased the products listed above should discontinue use of the product and may return the unused portion.
