This just in from the FDA:
"The Kroger Company has recalled Comforts FOR BABY Purified Water with Fluoride Added 1 GAL (3.78 L) with sell by dates from 4/26/2018 to 10/10/2018, after receiving complaints about mold in the product. 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. The Kroger Company has instructed its stores to remove the recalled products."

(Editors Note: "Penicillium species are usually regarded as unimportant in terms of causing human disease. Penicillium marneffei, now called Talaromyces marneffei,[1] discovered in 1956, is an exception. This is the only known thermally dimorphic species of Penicillium, and it can cause a lethal systemic infection (penicilliosis) with fever and anaemia similar to disseminated cryptococcosis."
Quoted from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penicillium_marneffei

It's just horrific that they would add fluoride to a product intended for babies. Fluoride is a neurotoxin.

I decided a few years ago to filter all tap water here at home. When traveling we both have filtered water bottles. I’ve been lied to and just not told about water for just too long.
