Kentucky-made Bauer’s Candies under recall over hep A concerns

A brand of candy made in Kentucky could make you sick.

The Food and Drug Administration wants you to throw out any Bauer’s Candies chocolate or caramel Modjeskas after a factory worker tested positive for hepatitis A.

The recall affects candies bought after Nov. 14, 2018.

The company is in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. The FDA says the recalled candies were sold though QVS and Bauers’ Candies’ website.

The FDA recommends anyone who ate the candies bought after Nov. 14 consult with their doctor to determine whether they need  post exposure prophylaxis, which is a preventative measure some people are recommended to have if they’ve been exposed to hepatitis A within the past two weeks.
