Chocolate-covered marshmallows recalled nationwide over hepatitis A fears

Bauer’s Candies FDA issues recall due to possible hepatitis A contamination

Consumers who bought the individually wrapped marshmallow candy dipped in chocolate or caramel after November 14, 2018 should throw them away.

Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas - marshmallow candies dipped in chocolate or caramel, the FDA said - are subject to the warning.

But today, the firm announced a voluntary recall after a worker tested positive for hepatitis A, a highly contagious infection. The FDA recommends anyone who ate the candy, bought after November 14, 2018, to contact their healthcare provider if they don't have the hepatitis A vaccine.

The FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have not been made aware of any cases of hepatitis A that have occurred due to eating the candy; however, hepatitis A has a long incubation period and serious consequences. The FDA says the transmission of the virus through the candy is low. While the possibility of transmission from the candy is low, the agency recommends that anyone who ate the sweets after November 14th who haven't been vaccinated speak to their healthcare provider to determine whether they should be given post-exposure prophylaxis. Bauer's sweets, based in Kentucky, is available at retail locations as well as QVC and their website. We are now working with Bauer's sweets, located in Kentucky, on a voluntary recall of affected products.

Meanwhile, hepatitis A is generally spread when a "person ingests fecal matter-even in microscopic amounts-from an infected person", said the regulator.

People infected with hepatitis A might not have symptoms until 15 to 50 days they are exposed, said the FDA in its notice.

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

It is a virus that causes liver inflammation.
