HUNTINGTON. W.Va. (WSAZ) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has recalled baby purified water sold at Kroger stores because of complaints of mold.
Kroger Company has recalled Comforts For Baby Purified Water with Fluoride with sell-by dates from 4/26/2018 to 10/10/2018 after receiving complaints of Talaromyces Penicillium mold in the product.
