FDA Warns That Certain Candies Might Be Contaminated with Hepatitis A

Bauer's Candies 

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

In a statement, the President of Bauer's sweets said that it voluntarily closed its facility and "discarded all candy in house, sanitized per protocol, and began working with Federal and State agencies" when it learned of the employee's illness.

The FDA said that it and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) were "not aware of any cases of hepatitis A related to the consumption of these candies" at this time, but added that the disease can have "a long incubation period and can have serious health consequences for some people, especially those with other health problems".

Risk of infection from consuming the sweets is considered low, but anyone who may have eaten the affected sweets is advised to see their doctor, especially those who haven't been vaccinated against hepatitis A.

Candy produced after November 25 was not affected.

Hepatitis A is an acute infectious disease of the liver.

Symptoms - which include fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and dark urine - can take anywhere from two to seven weeks after exposure to appear.

People infected with HAV may not have symptoms until 15 to 50 days after exposure.

Any sweets purchased after November 14, 2018, may be contaminated because a worker in the facility tested positive for hepatitis A, according to the FDA. Young children may not show symptoms of HAV infection.

It can spread by eating food handled by someone with the virus who hasn't thoroughly washed their hands after using the toilet, drinking contaminated water, eating raw shellfish from polluted water, being in close contact with a person who was infected, or having intercourse with someone who has the virus.
