Kratom Salmonella Outbreak Updates And More

Happy (Almost) St. Patrick's day!

This is the Kratomaton Biweekly update for March 15th, 2018!

Whether you celebrate with green beer or Green Maeng Da - we'd like to wish you a fun and festive weekend!

This week's update isn't exactly jam-packed with new stuff, but there are a few recent developments that we'd like to point out.

So, without further pause - let's get into it!



Kratom Salmonella Outbreak Update

Following a trend of recent salmonella outbreaks in the United States - which the CDC and FDA have stated were kratom related - several connections have been made to suspected kratom vendors and contaminated products.

Portland-based company PDX Aromatics - also doing business as Kraken Kratom, Phytoextractum, and Soul Speciosa - has recalled a number of their products that are suspected to be contaminated with salmonella.

The company stated that they've "identified a supplier in our supply chain as the source of Salmonella," and that they had subsequently "removed that supplier from our supply chain and all associated products from our facility."

If you've recently purchased kratom products from PDX Aromatics, Kraken Kratom, Phytoextractum, or Soul Speciosa - we urge you to contact these vendors and cease consumption of the products immediately.


Upcoming DC Kratom Rally

Members of the kratom community within the United States are organizing a Washington, DC rally for June 5th, 2018 in the interest of keeping kratom legal.

You can read more about the details of this event at Reddit's Kratom community.

More details are expected to arise within the coming weeks.
