If you’ve bought Kroger’s Comforts For Baby purified water with added fluoride, you’d better check the sell-by date.
Because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just ordered a major recall.
The recall, announced Monday, affects gallon bottles with a sell-by date between 4/26/2018 and 10/10/2018.
According to the FDA, the mold— Talaromyces penicillium—is not visible to the naked eye, so even though the bottles for the baby water are clear, that’s not going to help you see if they’re affected.
And infants with HIV or other immune system deficiencies could become infected, leading to “serious health consequences,” the FDA warned.
