PhotoMaya Distribution, LLC -- based in South Salt Lake City, Utah -- has issued a voluntary recall of its Dragon Kratom labeled bottles and sealed packages of encapsulated and raw powder product. The company says these kratom products may have been contaminated with salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. However, symptoms such as arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract infections can develop in more serious cases; the condition can even be fatal to young children, the elderly, or those with weakened immune systems. 

The company says the following products are subject to recall:

What to do

Maya initiated the recall after being notified by the FDA of a positive test for salmonella. It says that it has since located the source of the contaminated product and ceased its production and distribution.

The affected products were sold to retailers in Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Kansas, Illinois, Idaho, Iowa, and Michigan. The FDA says that one illness related to the recall has been reported thus far, and it urges consumers not to consume affected products.

Consumers can return affected products to Maya Distribution or to the place of purchase for a full refund.
