Wash. State Health Dept. Says Do NOT Consume Kratom
March 04, 2018



Chronicle staff

(OLYMPIA, WA.) Washington State Department of Health announced on Friday that people should not consume any form of kratom because it could be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella infection is very serious, and it is important that people avoid consuming products that contain kratom because it could make you sick,” said State Epidemiologist Dr. Scott Lindquist.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are currently investigating a Salmonella outbreak linked to kratom products in 27 states, including Washington state. 

Three people in Washington state have been affected by this outbreak

County                       Gender                       Age                 Hospitalized

Clark                              Male                         30s                         No

Walla Walla                  Female                      30s                         Yes

King                               Male                         20s                         Yes

Kratom is a plant consumed throughout the world for its stimulant effects and as an opioid substitute. It’s typically brewed into a tea, chewed, smoked, or ingested in capsules.

It is also known as Thang, Kakuam, Thom, Ketum, and Biak.

Consumers who have symptoms of Salmonella should contact their health care provider. If you are diagnosed with Salmonella, be sure to tell your health care provider about all products you may be using, including products reported to contain kratom. Consumers should be aware that some products might not list kratom on the labeling.  

Anyone can get Salmonella, but these groups are most at risk for severe illness:

  • People with weakened immune systems

  • Pregnant women

  • Children younger than five years old

  • Older adults

More information about Salmonella can be found on the DOH’s Salmonella web page.
