Chocolates, caramels recalled over possible hepatitis A contamination

"We are 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", the release said.

Although there are no current cases of hepatitis A related to the sweets, the FDA warns that the disease has a long incubation period and can offer serious health consequences for some people.

Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas purchased after November 14 should not be eaten, the FDA said.

In it's alert, the FDA said the chance of contracting hepatitis A from the sweets is low, but it advised customers who ate any recalled sweets to see a doctor to see if they need medicine to treat a possible infection. 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.

It can happen when an infected person prepares food without washing their hands, even if the person doesn't show signs of illness.

Bauer's sweets did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for additional comment. Many cases initially report few or no symptoms, especially among minors, and the period between infection and the appearance of symptoms can take up to six weeks. It is highly contagious and is typically spread through sexual contact, needle sharing, or by consuming food that has been contaminated by someone infected with the virus. Hepatitis A can cause liver failure and even death, typically in those who are 50 years of age or older, though that's rare. "Some people with acute liver failure may need a liver transplant", says the Mayo Clinic.
