CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Kroger Company has recalled Comforts For Baby purified water with fluoride added after receiving complaints about mold in the product.

The recall concerns the 1 gallon (3.78 liters) product with sell-by dates from April 26, 2018, to Oct. 10, 2018.

Testing by Kroger has identified the mold as Talaromyces penicillium. The water is sold in clear containers, but the mold may not be visible with the naked eye.

The FDA is issuing this consumer alert to reach parents and caregivers who may have bought the product, which is intended for infants.

The products were distributed to Kroger stores, including Food 4 Less, Jay C, Jay C Food Plus, Kroger, Kroger Marketplace, Owen's, Payless Super Market, and Ruler stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
