Pious Lion located in Asheville, NC  is voluntarily recalling for two kratom products after tests conducted by laboratories for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services found the presence of Salmonella in them.  While tests conducted on the products on behalf of Pious Lion by an independent laboratory did not reveal the presence of Salmonella out of an abundance of caution, in the interest of consumers, the company is voluntarily recalling the following two products:

Pious Lion Pure Premium Potent Limited Release Pink Bali, 1 oz

 

Pious Lion Pure Premium Potent White Maeng DA, Bright Uplifting Energy, 4 oz

 

Consumers should immediately stop using these products.  Any containers used to store the kratom product should be thoroughly washed and sanitized. In order to prevent cross-contamination, consumers should wash their hands, work surfaces and utensils thoroughly after contact with these products, and not prepare any food in the area at the same time.

 

Salmonella is a dangerous organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments. People exhibiting any unusual symptoms after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.
