Chocolates, Caramels Might be Contaminated with Hepatitis A, FDA Warns

Candy sold by a Kentucky company and QVC is being voluntarily recalled for fear that it might be contaminated with hepatitis A, according to a U.S. Food and Drug recall notice.

Bauer’s Candies’ famous Modjeskas, individually-wrapped marshmallow candies dipped in chocolate or caramel, came in contact with a facility worker who tested positive for the liver disease. Customers who purchased the gourmet candies after Nov. 14 should throw the candies away, according to the FDA. The employee who tested positive for the virus worked at the company until Nov. 23.

Hepatitis A is spread when people consume even small amounts of fecal matter from an infected person.
