ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

An Asheville business is voluntarily recalling two of their Kratom products due to a possible health risk, said company officials on Thursday.

Pious Lion is recalling Pious Lion Pure Premium Potent Limited Release Pink Bali, 1 oz and Pious Lion Pure Premium Potent White Maeng DA, Bright Uplifting Energy, 4 oz. Company officials said the recall is due to the presence of Salmonella.

Company officials said the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services notified Pious Lion on May 15 that their products tested positive for Salmonella, and stopped shipping products that same day.

Pious Lion said tests were conducted on the products by an independent laboratory, which didn't reveal the presence of Salmonella. 

Officials said consumers should immediately stop using these products, and that any containers used to store the kratom product should be thoroughly washed and sanitized. Company officials said in order to prevent cross-contamination, consumers also should wash their hands, work surfaces and utensils thoroughly after contact with the recalled products, and to avoid preparing any food int eh area at the same time

For more information on how to return the product for replacement or a full refund, you can call Pious Lion Customer Service at (828) 398-0570, Monday - Friday 10 a.m.  - 8 p.m. EST.
