The American Kratom Association (AKA), representing more than 15 million kratom consumers in the United States, today announced a new consumer protection initiative, the Kratom Truth in Labeling Compliance Program. The AKA strongly opposes unscrupulous vendors who use illegal health claims to increase sales of kratom products. This new self-regulation program will encourage consumers to report potential marketing violations so that the FDA can investigate and, when appropriate, take needed enforcement actions against kratom vendors who use impermissible health claims to mislead consumers about the actual benefits of using this otherwise safe food product.
This new initiative expands on the efforts to bring more accountability to the kratom vendor community and to stop the misbranding and deceptive advertising that leads unsuspecting consumers to purchase adulterated or misbranded kratom products. Now more than ever, it's important to ask where your kratom comes from and demand lab results.
At SOL Botanicals, our quality standard guarantees 100% authentic kratom backed by lab results showing the microbiology, heavy metals, and alkaloid profile easily accessible at www.solbotanicals.shop/lab-results. We expanded on this important topic on another blog post found here.
