FDA Warning:Possible Hepatitis A contamination

Company: Bauer’s Candies, Lawrenceburg, KY
Product: Caramel Modjeskas,and possibly chocolates

Details: “We are a fresh made candy company and keep internal lot numbers for days of production. If anyone has any concerns at all, they can call the office, 502-839-3700 or email me directly at, anna@bauerscandy.com.”

This warning applies to any of the product purchased after Nov. 14, according to the FDA.

Bauer said the implicated candy does not have any product codes or other label information, other than the name, that consumers can use to determin whether they have possession of the products. The company owner told Food Safety News only Modjeskas purchased from Nov. 16-23 are implicated. She said it was fortunate the issue was discovered Thinskgiving week because it was a low production and shipping week.

The timing is crucial because of the nature of the hepatitis A virus and post-exposure treatment. Most young children have been routinely been vaccinated against the potentially fatal liver virus in recent years. But most adults have not been vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There is a narrow two-week window of opportunity after exposure for people to receive after-the-fact treatment in the form of the hepatitis A vaccine or immunoglobulin.  

“Although the risk of hepatitis A transmission from the candy is low, FDA recommends that consumers who ate candies purchased after November 14, 2018 and have not been vaccinated for hepatitis A consult with their healthcare professional to determine whether post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) is indicated,” according to the FDA public alert.

As of the posting of the alert, neither the FDA nor the CDC had received any reports of confirmed hepatitis A infections related to consumption of the Brauer’s candy. However, it can take up to 50 days after exposure for symptoms to develop, so anyone who ate any of the implicated candy should monitor themselves in the coming two months for symptoms.
