• Chocolates, caramels sold by QVC recalled due to possible hepatitis contamination


    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning for chocolates and caramels due to possible hepatitis A contamination.

    According to a message on the Bauer’s Candies website, an employee who tested positive for Hepatitis A worked at the Kentucky facility between November 16 and 23, 2018.

    When the company learned of the employee’s illness, the factory was closed and sanitized. All candy in house was also discarded. 

    The candies were available at stores, through the Bauer’s website and QVC.

    The FDA said it was not aware of any cases of hepatitis A related to the consumption of Bauer’s candies, but issued an alert as a precaution.

    If you have any, you should throw it away.
