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

The warning, last updated on December 6, advised consumers to throw away any Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas purchased after November 14.

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 company, which is located in Kentucky, is working with the FDA on a voluntary recall of the products.
