LOCAL ILLNESS LINKED TO NATIONAL SALMONELLA OUTBREAK INVOLVING KRATOM

Northeast Tri County Health District is recommending people do not consume the supplement kratom because it may contain salmonella.  Currently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating a salmonella outbreak that has infected forty (40) people and is linked to kratom in twenty-seven (27) states, including Washington State.  One (1) case has been linked to Stevens County.
