Candy recalled for possible hepatitis A contamination

Candy recall over possible Hepatitis A contamination

The FDA has a warning to consumers who may have purchased select types of Bauer's sweets.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted customers to a possible hepatitis A contamination of Bauer's Candies Modjeskas.

Bauer's sweets released a statement on their website regarding the FDA alert, explaining that a worker in their facility tested positive for hepatitis A. The company has since closed the facility and discarded all of the candy inside.

The sweets were sold in stores online at BauersCandy.com and on QVC.

USA Today reports that the employee that tested positive for the virus worked at the company until November 23.

Trump stepped up his criticism of the Fed's string of rate hikes past year after the market started falling sharply in October. Powell noted that the Fed's holdings were around $1 trillion before the 2008 crisis. "There is no such plan", Powell said.

The FDA claims a worker in the Bauer's facility tested positive for hepatitis A.

"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".

Officials recommend those who ate the sweets purchased after November 14 consult with their healthcare provider to determine whether post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is indicated, even though the risk of hepatitis A transmission from the candy is low. "These agencies have cleared us to continue operation".

People with questions or concerns can contact Bauer's sweets at 502-839-3700 or via email at anna@bauerscandy.com.

Symptoms may include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark urine, and pale stool. Young children, however, may not show symptoms. It can be spread through contaminated food or water. Hepatitis A can cause liver failure and even death, typically in those who are 50 years of age or older, though that's rare.
