The Kroger Company is recalling bottled water intended for infants due to the presence of mold.

The FDA is alerting the public to a recall of Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride, sold in Kroger stores, for potential mold contamination.

According to a release, the mold found inside the water is identified as Talaromyces penicillium.

Affected products were sold in one-gallon containers and have an expiration date between April 26, 2018, and October 10, 2018, FDA said.

According to a release, the product was distributed to Kroger stores in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. The labels also state "DISTRIBUTED BY THE KROGER CO, CINCINNATI, OHIO 45202".

Symptoms of exposure to mold, including Talaromyces penicillium, can cause immediate or delayed allergic reactions from inhaling or touching the mold or microscopic mold spores. The Kroger Co. has instructed its stores to remove the recalled products. Even those who aren't allergic might get symptoms such as eye, skin and throat irritation.

"These individuals may become infected and this may lead to serious health consequences".

If you have this water, Kroger wants you to stop using it immediately and return it to the store for a refund.

However, people who are allergic to the mold and also asthmatic may suffer asthma attacks. Parents and caregivers of infants should contact their doctor if concerned.
