Popular Candy Recalled Following Hepatitis A Concerns
A Kentucky candy distributor is voluntarily recalling some of its candy after it announced some candy may have been exposed to hepatitis A. The candy, Bauer’s Candies’ famous Modjeskas, is also sold by the popular shopping channel, QVC.
The company says that some of the chocolate marshmallow candies, Modjeskas, potentially interacted with an employee who tested positive for hepatitis A. Consumers who bought the candy after November 14th should throw it away.
The company’s president, Anna Bauer, released a statement over the potential risks to consumers. Bauer says the company threw away all of its current candy supply and sanitized the machines used to produce the candy.
Hepatitis A is spread by way of infected fecal matter. It can take 50 days before an infected person may notice any symptoms.
