The FDA is warning consumers to not eat and throw away any Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas. The FDA said a worker at the facility in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, tested positive for Hepatitis A. This affects candies purchased after Nov. 14.
Although the risk of contracting Hep A through these candies is low, the FDA is recommending anyone who bought the candies after Nov. 14 who is not vaccinated for Hep A to consult their doctor.
The FDA said the recalled candies were sold though QVC and BauersCandy.com. The company is issuing a voluntary recall of the candy.
Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease and symptoms can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months.
