The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services is warning Granite Staters about a recall of food products containing powdered kratom made or processed by Triangle Pharmanaturals.

The public health alert comes after the Food and Drug Administration issued a recall on those products after finding several to be contaminated with salmonella.

The products include Raw Form Organics Maeng Da Kratom Emerald Green, Raw Form Organics Maeng Da Kratom Ivory White, and Raw Form Organics Maeng Da Kratom Ruby Red.

The state Division of Public Health reports that it does not know which retailers received shipment of these products.

The FDA and Centers for Disease Control are investigating an outbreak of salmonella associated with kratom that has infected 132 people in 38 states. There are no known cases in New Hampshire.

Here is more information on the FDA recall and kratom update.
