Possible Contamination of Bauer’s Candies’ Modjeskas with Hepatitis A

The FDA is alerting consumers to possible hepatitis A contamination of Bauer’s Candies Modjeskas, an individually wrapped marshmallow candy dipped in chocolate or caramel. 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, because a worker in the facility tested positive for hepatitis A. These products are available at retail locations and can also be purchased through QVC and BauersCandy.com. The FDA is working with Bauer’s Candies, located in Kentucky, on a voluntary recall of affected products. Currently, the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are not aware of any cases of hepatitis A related to the consumption of these candies. The FDA recommends that consumers who ate candies purchased after November 14, 2018, and have not been vaccinated for hepatitis A consult with their healthcare professional to determine whether post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is indicated. @ https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/SafetyAlertsAdvisories/ucm627841.htm
