In their statement, the FDA noted that the risk of contamination from the sweets was "low", adding that those infected with the virus may not have symptoms until 15 to 50 days after exposure.

The FDA is warning consumers of sweets manufactured at a facility in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky that may be contaminated with hepatitis A. Consumers and retailers have been advised to throw away and not to eat the affected sweets purchased after November 14. The sweets were sold exclusively online and through QVC. Symptoms may include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, yellowing of the skin or eyes (known as jaundice), dark urine, and pale stool.

Those infected with hepatitis A may not have symptoms until 15 to 50 days after exposure.

In a statement on Bauer's website, it said the employee worked in the facility from November 16-23.

The FDA is 'advising consumers not to eat and to throw away any Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas, purchased after November 14, 2018 because a worker in the facility tested positive for hepatitis A, ' the FDA said. "These agencies have cleared us to continue operation".

Risk of infection from consuming the sweets is considered low, but anyone who may have eaten the affected sweets is advised to see their doctor, especially those who haven't been vaccinated against hepatitis A. We are now working with Bauer's sweets, located in Kentucky, on a voluntary recall of affected products. Many cases initially report few or no symptoms, especially among minors, and the period between infection and the appearance of symptoms can take up to six weeks.

The Mayo Clinic says hepatitis A can be spread through a variety of ways.

It is a virus that causes liver inflammation.

"Acute liver failure requires a stay in the hospital for monitoring and treatment".
