The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued previous warnings regarding kratom – a plant that grows in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Its structure is similar, according to the FDA, “with controlled opioid analgesics, such as morphine derivatives, thus making kratom-containing products opioids.” “The agency has also been assessing peer-reviewed research and a growing number of adverse event reports associated with kratom use, including 44 reported deaths,” the FDA said in a February announcement.


Another recall involves 2.5 million GTC brand halogen light bulbs purchased from H-E-B. They were sold in packages of 2 or 4 bulbs. The company say they have received 14 reports of the light bulbs shattering while in a lamp or light fixture. One consumer had a cut on his hand and another had a burn to his hand and cuts on his foot.
