You could try the following:

Edit/select all/   then
Tools/Interactive Placement/Position Component text
Check the radio button in the center of the 'Comment' component (to move all
comments to the center of components).

Or try globally unhiding all comment fields to find the offending comment.

These methods can also be applied to the Designator text fields, but I'm
guessing that they are not hidden.

If all this fails do an Edit/Select/Outside Area (of your PCB) then
CNTRL+DELETE to delete anything not on your PCB.
