Bauer's sweets chocolate or caramel Modjeskas are being recalled for possible hepatitis A contamination, health officials warn.

The issue pertains to Bauer's Candies' famous Modjeskas, which are individually-wrapped marshmallow sweets that have been either dipped in chocolate or caramel.

At this time, the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are not aware of any cases of hepatitis A related to the consumption of these sweets.

A candy product sold nationwide, as well as on QVC and online platforms, is being recalled due to possible hepatitis A contamination. The president of Bauer's sweets said the company voluntarily discarded all in-house candy, sanitized equipment, and began working with federal and stages agencies after learning about the possible contamination.

While the risk of contracting hepatitis A is low, the FDA advised consumers who purchased the affected sweets to consult a doctor, especially if they are not vaccinated against hepatitis A. PEP may be recommended for unvaccinated people who have been exposed to hepatitis A virus (HAV) in the last 2 weeks; those with evidence of previous hepatitis A vaccination do not require PEP. Symptoms can take up to 50 days to appear.

Symptoms include fever, fatigue, dark urine, vomiting, joint pain and jaundice, among other signs.

The FDA is recommending that anyone who ate Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas to consult with their healthcare provider to determine whether PEP is indicated. Consumers and retailers should throw away and not consume any chocolate or caramel Modjeskas purchased after November 14, 2018.
