Blissful Remedies Kratom Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

On June 30, 2018, Blissful Remedies issued a recall of three kratom products 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.  

Recalled Blissful Remedies kratom products were manufactured between March 1, 2018 to April 30, 2018 and were distributed to the following states: Arkansas, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Dakota, Texas, and Virginia. They were sold in white foil pouches bearing Lot No.: 112710 with expiration date 03/2019 and can be identified by the following additional information:
  • Label: Red Maeng Da (100% Mitragyna Speciosa), Size: 50 capsules

  • Label: Gold Series Ultra Enhanced Indo (100% Mitragyna Speciosa), Size: 50 capsules

  • Label: Kratom+CBD., CBD infusedMaeng Da, Size: 50 capsules
Blissful Remedies is notifying its customers by e-mail and/or telephone. People who have purchased the recalled products are urged to return them or immediately discard them.

Kratom, also known as Thang, Kakuam, Thom, Ketom, and Biak, is often sold as powdered leaves or extract in loose powder, tea, capsules or liquids, and is promoted for energy, pain relief or to help ease opioid withdrawal. Consumption of kratom has also been associated with adverse effects, including hepatotoxicity, psychosis, seizure, weight loss, insomnia, tachycardia, vomiting, poor concentration, hallucinations, and death, associated with its opioid properties.
