The federal agency had received confirmation of 28 people across 20 states with infections from Salmonella I 4, , 12:b:- as of February 16, according to the outbreak notice posted today.
"At this time, CDC recommends that people not consume kratom in any form because it could be contaminated with Salmonella", the CDC advised in its bulletin. But because the CDC can't pin down exactly where the salmonella-carrying kratom comes from, it issued a blanket "don't use" recommendation. Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps that can last for up to a week, but most people recover without treatment.
"Today's action follows previous warnings from the FDA regarding kratom â€" a plant that grows in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
So far, no one has died from this latest outbreak, but 11 people have been hospitalized.

What's open, closed on Presidents Day 2018?
It's still "Washington's Birthday" says the administration-an event celebrated during the first president's life and thereafter. "But they focused, as a country, in George Washington and he really became a stand-in for the noblest ideals", said Cousins.
The herbal drug kratom is under fire for the second time this month. "The investigation indicates that kratom products could be contaminated with salmonella and could make people sick", the statement reads. Seventy-three percent of people with the illness reported consuming kratom in pills, powder, or tea, according to CDC. When ingested, the drug taps into some of the same brain receptors as opioid painkillers- a finding that prompted the Food and Drug Administration to classify it as an opioid earlier this month.
The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday announced a recall of dietary supplements that contain kratom, a herb the agency has classified as an opioid. Kratom advocates claim that the herbal supplement may be used to help opioid addicts get through withdrawal symptoms in weaning themselves off the powerful painkillers. Schedule I drugs are defined as having no accepted medical use and a high risk for abuse.
The American Kratom Association and patients who use the supplement for pain control immediately pushed back on that decision.
Kratom is also known as Thang, Kakuam, Thom, Ketom, and Biak.
