The FDA gas announced an alert about the recall of baby water which possibly contains mold.

The FDA wants to make sure that parents and guardians were aware of supermarket giant Kroger’s recall of Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride.

After getting complaints of mold in the water, Kroger tested the water and found Talaromyces penicillium.

“The mold may not be visible with the naked eye,” the consumer alert warns. “That kind of mold is very harmful to baby’s immune system.”

“Allergic reactions to molds are common and can happen immediately after touching or inhaling mold spores, or later,” the alert warns. “Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are also allergic to mold. Molds can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs, even in people who aren’t allergic to them.”

They sell the water in gallon jugs at Kroger, Kroger Marketplace, Food 4 Less, Jay C, Jay C Food Plus, Owen’s, Payless Super Market and Ruler stores mainly in the Midwest and South: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Consumers can get a refund by returning this water and contact Kroger for information by telephone at 888-723-33663 , Monday through Friday, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern time.
