The FDA is asking everyone who purchased Bauer Chocolates and caramel candies to throw them away. The candies are linked to a possible Hepatitis A contamination.

The FDA says Bauer's Candies Modjeskas, an individually wrapped marshmallow candy dipped in chocolate or caramel, might be contaminated with Hepatitis A.

The candies are available at retail locations. They can also be purchased through QVC and BauersCandy.com.

Consumers are advised to throw away any Bauer’s Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas, purchased after November 14, 2018. The announcement comes after a worker in the facility tested positive for hepatitis A.

If you consumed the candy, the FDA has advice for you. Although the risk of hepatitis A transmission from the candy is low, 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.
