Kroger recalls baby water due to mold concerns

"Testing by Kroger has identified the mold as Talaromyces penicillium", the FDA said on social media.

The grocery chain is recalling "Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Flouride Added".

Kroger has recalled bottles of purified water for infants because they may contain mold.

Kroger (kr) disputed the severity of the problem, but nevertheless told staff in its stores to take the affected bottles off the shelves.

According to a release, the product was distributed to Kroger stores in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky.

If you've recently purchased pediatric bottled water from Kroger or one of its affiliates, you may want to check it. Kroger has issued a recall for the bottled water after customers complained about mold in the product, according to a USA government recall notice. The symptoms can include sneezing, red eyes, and skin rashes, as well as other eye, skin, and throat irritation. Allergic reactions can happen immediately after touching or inhaling the fungus or later. For people with asthma who are allergic to mold, it could trigger an asthma attack.

Drinking water or other products contaminated with this fungus can affect infants who have HIV or other health conditions that compromise the immune system. However, according to the FDA, the mold is not necessarily visible to the naked eye.
