The CDC Report on "Unintentional Drug Overdose Deaths with Kratom Detected" resulted in numerous media headlines that incorrectly cited kratom's role in the reported deaths as being "linked" to an overdose death when the CDC data actually disproves the FDA assertions that kratom itself causes deaths.   

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT: In a response to the CDC Report, five leading researchers who have expertise in the science or public policy on kratom, issued a reply to the CDC that highlights the correct regulatory approach to protect consumers.
