Triangle Pharmanaturals Refuses To Recall Kratom After Salmonella Found – FDA Orders One Anyway

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, has announced an update to the mandatory recall of Triangle Pharmanaturals the agency ordered after the company reportedly refused to pull potentially tainted kratom products last month.

Why won't Triangle Pharmaceuticals recall products that tested positive for Salmonella?

FDA letter to Chris Becker and Triangle Pharmanaturals ordering Becker to immediately cease distribution of multiple kratom products.

As of FDA’s latest statement the following products from Triangle Pharmanaturals are recalled:

There may be additional brands made or sold by Triangle Pharmanaturals, said the agency in its update.

So far, at least two Triangle Pharmanaturals products have been found by Oregon Public Health Division to be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria; another four tested positive for FDA. The agency characterizes Triangle Pharmanaturals’ attitude as uncooperative, with the company refusing to recall on its own and declining to even discuss the multiple, positive tests.

At this time, no kratom product from Triangle has been suspected in the still-ongoing Salmonella outbreak blamed on tainted kratom sold by numerous other companies.
