Kroger recalls water for infants after mold contamination — RECALL ALERT

The product was sold in North Carolina stores.

Kroger is recalling its Comforts For Baby brand purified water after the grocery chain discovered mold in the product. In the general population, breathing in or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions, like sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rashes, and trigger asthma attacks in asthmatics who are allergic to mold.

Kroger has recalled water for babies after complaints about mold in the product, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced Monday.

"Comforts for Baby purified water with fluoride" was sold in one-gallon, clear containers, with sell-by dates of April 26 to October 10, 2018, a UPC code of 0 41260 37597 2 and Plant code of 514140.


The clear, one gallon water jugs may have mold in them.

The affected products are labeled "Comforts For Baby Purified Water with Fluoride" and bear the plant code 51-4140 and the UPC number 0 41260 37597 2. The labels also state DISTRIBUTED BY THE KROGER CO, CINCINNATI, OHIO 45202.

The FDA told all consumers who purchased this water-not just those who see discoloration-to return it to the store for a refund.

The mold can have "serious health consequences" for babies, according to the FDA. Consult your health care professional if you believe your infant may be affected.
