Chocolates, caramels recalled over possible hepatitis A contamination

While QVC is known for retail and beauty the FDA is warning customers who bought Bauer’s Candies' famous Modjeskas to be careful

The FDA's warning affects Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently issued a warning to consumers about certain sweets made in Kentucky that could be contaminated with hepatitis A, a highly contagious liver disease, the New York Post reported.

Certain sweets made by a company in Kentucky could be contaminated with hepatitis A, a highly contagious infection that typically affects the liver, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a recent warning to consumers.

Bauer's, a Kentucky-based company, began a voluntary recall of the candies, known as Modjeskas, amid fears that they may be contaminated, the FDA said in a safety advisory.

The firm said the employee tested positive for the virus had worked at the facility from November 16 to November 23, said Anna Bauer, president of Bauer's sweets, in a statement. The FDA recommends anyone who ate the candy, bought after November 14, 2018, to contact their healthcare provider if they don't have the hepatitis A vaccine.

"An investigation by our local health department and the FDA found that the risk of contamination to the candy made during this time is extremely low".

Although the risk of hepatitis A transmission from the candy is low, FDA recommends that consumers who ate sweets purchased after November 14, 2018 and have not been vaccinated for hepatitis A consult with their healthcare professional. "These agencies have cleared us to continue operation".

According to the company, no candy products produced after November 25 were affected.

Bauer's sweets did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for additional comment.

Common symptoms can include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine and pale stool. Many cases initially report few or no symptoms, especially among minors, and the period between infection and the appearance of symptoms can take up to six weeks.

Unlike other types of hepatitis, it doesn't cause long-term liver damage and doesn't become chronic, the Mayo Clinic adds.
