Popular Kentucky-made sweets recalled as a result of Hepatitis A worries - National News

LAWRENCEBURG, KY. (WTHR) – Candy from a popular confectioner from Kentucky is recalled over concerns about Hepatitis A.

The FDA issued a health warning for Modjeskas, made by Bauer's Candies in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, east of Lexington. The marshmallow candy, covered with chocolate or caramel, is recalled after an employee where the candy is made, tested positive for Hepatitis A.

Every Modjeskas purchased after November 14, 2018 should not be eaten, according to the FDA.

Company chairman Anna Bauer said the facility was closed after hearing the employee's illness, all the sweets in stock were discarded and the facility was sterilized. The company has since been freed up to resume activities and said that no sweets made after November 25 are affected.

If you have questions about the return, please contact Bauer by telephone at 502-839-3700 or by e-mail at anna@bauerscandy.com.

Bauer & # 39; s Candies has been around since 1889, when it started making the Modjeskas with the help of a secret recipe.
