In April, the Food and Drug Administration ordered a mandatory recall of kratom products manufactured by Las Vegas-based Triangle Pharmanaturals after investigators found that numerous products contained salmonella.
The CDC said the outbreak impacted 11 states, including 8 in NY, 5 in North Carolina, 8 in Virginia, 6 in Pennsylvania, 3 in SC and 1 case in Colorado, West Virginia, and New Jersey.
Twelve more people have been reported sick since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) first issued an advisory about the outbreak in April, the organization announced Thursday.
More illnesses have been reported in connection to a salmonella outbreak that led to the recall of more than 206 million eggs last month.
Contaminated eggs were sold under multiple brand names including Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion, Glenview, Great Value, Nelms, Publix, Sunshine Farms, and Sunups.
Rose Acre Farms told The Washington Post in a Saturday statement it was "disheartened by the additional illnesses".

The symptoms, which include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps, take about 12-72 hours after exposure to take effect.
Consumers who have purchased shells eggs are urged to immediately discontinue use of the recalled eggs and to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
More than 500 million eggs from two Iowa farms owned and controlled by Austin J. DeCoster were recalled that year. Most of the cases, including 11 people hospitalized, were reported in NY and Virginia.
The egg recall is the largest in the USA since 2010, the CDC said.
The recall is the largest since 2010, when a major salmonella outbreak tied to Iowa egg farms sickened more than 1,500 people, said Bill Marler, a Seattle-based personal injury attorney who focuses on food-borne illness litigation. The outbreak spread to almost 40 states and sickened 132 people. No deaths have been reported. No one has died.
There is aditional information on the recall on the FDA website and the CDC website.
