Kratom is a plant used for its stimulant effects and as an opioid substitute.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is handling a multi-state Salmonella outbreak, which has sickened at least 87 people in at least 35 states.

Many people take kratom to manage chronic pain or for treating opioid withdrawal symptoms. Product recalls related to the outbreak will be posted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's website.

The three strains are Salmonella Okatie, Salmonella Javiana and Salmonella Thompson.

Health officials are warning people to not consume Kratom in any form. Kratom may also be known as Thang, Kakuam, Thom, Ketom, or Biak, and may be consumed as pills, powder, or used to make tea.

Almost 90 people are now sick in a nationwide Salmonella outbreak linked to kratom powder, pills and tea, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday.

No deaths have been reported so far, but health officials said 27 people required hospitalization due to illness caused by the infection.

The CDC's initial announcement identified 28 people who fell sick across 20 states between October 12, 2017 and January 308. Outbreak strains of Salmonella Okatie and Salmonella Thompson were identified in these samples. The law firm has brought Salmonella lawsuits against such companies as Cargill, ConAgra, Peanut Corporation of America, Sheetz, Taco Bell, Subway and Wal-Mart.

Symptoms of salmonella usually begin within 12 to 72 hours after exposure, however it is possible for symptoms to appear up to two weeks after exposure.

Two Minnesota adults contracted Salmonella in January, after consuming kratom powder.

Please visit the FDA's Salmonella in kratom outbreak webpage for more information.

Many cases of salmonella infection aren't reported because the victims don't go to the doctor or report their illness, Buuck said. Salmonellaserotype typhimurium and Salmonella serotype enteritidis are the most common types in the U.S. Salmonellosis is more common in the summer than in the winter. In rare cases, complications from salmonella can become deadly.
