Candy recalled over Hepatitis A risk, because we can't have anything nice


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CIRCA VIA WZTV) -- The Food and Drug Administration is warning of candy made in Kentucky that's possibly contaminated with Hepatitis A.

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.
