(CNN) - Kroger is recalling a brand of water for infants after a mold discovery.

"Comforts for Baby purified water with fluoride" was sold in one-gallon, clear containers, with sell-by dates of April 26 to Oct. 10, 2018, a UPC code of 0 41260 37597 2 and Plant code of 514140.

The prodoct was sold at Kroger stores and affiliated stores, including Food 4 Less, Jay C, Jay C Food Plus, 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.  

The FDA said the mold, idenfitied as Talaromyces penicillium, is not visible to the naked eye.

After receiving customer complaints, the grocery store chain tested the water and identified the mold.

The FDA said exposure can cause skin and respiratory irritation.

Infants with an already compromised immune system may be at an increased risk, according to officials.

Kroger has pulled the product from its shelves. If you have purchased the water, you can return it to the store for a refund.

More details about the recall can be found on FDA.gov.
