CDC tracks highest record of Salmonella linked to backyard poultry in 2017

CDC tracks highest record of Salmonella linked to backyard poultry in 2017

According to the CDC, 28 people have been found with salmonella infections across 20 states; of those, 11 people were hospitalized due to the illness, though fortunately there are no reports of death.

To this end, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health advisory back in November of 2017 warning consumers not to use kratom.

The CDC is urging Kratom users to stop taking the plant in any form because the source of the contamination has not been identified. The FDA said recently that a new computer model it developed shows that kratom contains opioid compounds that can cause potentially lethal side effects such as seizures and depressed breathing. Gottlieb compared the substance mixes of kratom to opioids.

Cases have also been reported in Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and OR to name a few.

"It is typically brewed in a tea, chewed, smoked, or ingested in capsules".

Salmonella is usually transmitted when people eat foods contaminated with animal feces that carry the bacteria. In the United States, kratom products are sold as powders, pills, capsules and even energy drinks.

Sony to Enter the Ride-Hailing Business in Japan
It is unclear as to why Sony suddenly wants to get into the taxi/transportation business, but it could be an interesting approach. Local rivals, such as Nihon Kotsu Co., Tokyo's largest cab company, have already released popular taxi-hailing apps.

"At this time, CDC recommends that people not consume kratom in any form".

FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb warned the public about the herbal supplement in a statement this month, saying that "There is no evidence to indicate that kratom is safe or effective for any medical use".

Kratom is touted as an opioid alternative that can ease pain and elevate your mood, but in this case, officials say it's made dozens of people very sick.

"Kratom is not an opiate". Earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration classified kratom as a unsafe opioid, prompting backlash from some scientists studying its medicinal uses and proponent of Kratom who claim the plant can relieve pain, combat fatigue and improve mood. It is not an FDA-approved drug. Federal regulators unsuccessfully tried banning the plant in 2016.

It says kratom is illegal in Indiana, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Vermont, Arkansas, Alabama and Rhode Island, as well as some local jurisdictions including Sarasota County in Florida, San Diego and Washington, D.C.
