Kroger Recalls Water for Infants Due to Mold

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on February 3, 2018

The discovery of mold within a significant number of water containers distributed by the Kroger Company has resulted in a large recall. The discovery of mold occurred after several customers complained to Kroger regarding the water, alerting to the company as to the presence of a potential problem. While the exact claims of these complaints are not known (whether or not they identified specific health issues that emerged after the consumption of contaminated water or if they were more benign), the Kroger company did issue a statement saying that they took the complaints seriously, tested the water, and discovered a strain of mold known as Talaromyces penicillium within the water.

The water affected by the existence of mold is branded as Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride Added. It is marked as being specifically for infants, which makes the discovery of mold within the product even more alarming as the health risks associated with the consumption of mold are far more dramatic when applied to young children than they are for those more advanced in age. Even worse are the potential health issues that may arise for infants who also suffer from HIV.

After coming into contact with mold either through inhalation or other ingestion, people may experience symptoms much like those exhibited by people who suffer from hay fever. According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, even individuals who have no history of suffering from mold allergies can exhibit allergic symptoms when coming into contact with mold spores.

The Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride Added containers that are included in the recall are those containing expiration dates between April 26th, 2018 and October 10th, 2018. Anyone who has purchased Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride Added should immediately check and see if their container contains an expiration date resting in between the two mentioned above.

Kroger’s Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride Added were sold at numerous grocery outlets, including: Jay C Food Place, Payless Supermarket, Food 4 Less, and the Kroger flagship stores. As of this writing, all Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride Added products were removed from shelves of participating retailers.
