The FDA is alerting consumers of a possible hepatitis A contamination of popular candies made in Kentucky.

The FDA is warning consumers to not eat and throw away any Bauer’s Candies, covered in chocolate or caramel. The report said a worker at the Lawrenceburg, Kentucky facility tested positive for hepatitis A. The employee who tested positive for the virus worked at the company until Nov. 23.

This affects candies purchased after Nov. 14. These products are available at retail locations and can also be purchased through QVC and BauersCandy.com.

Consumers who ate the recalled candies should consult a doctor, the FDA said.
