FDA: Candy sold on QVC might be contaminated with Hepatitis A

Candy sold by a Kentucky company and QVC is being voluntarily recalled for fear that it might be contaminated with Hepatitis A.

Bauer's individually-wrapped marshmallow candies dipped in chocolate or caramel came in contact with a facility worker who tested positive for the contagious liver disease.

The FDA is advising consumers not to eat and to throw away any Bauer’s Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas, purchased after November 14, 2018.

At this time, the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are not aware of any cases of Hepatitis A related to consumption of these candies.

Hepatitis A can have a long incubation period and can have serious health consequences for some people, especially those with other health problems.

Although the risk of Hepatitis A transmission from the candy is low, FDA recommends that consumers who ate candies purchased after November 14, 2018, should consult with their healthcare provider.
