The candy is said to possibly be contaminated with hepatitis A from a former temp employee hired by the company.
The possible contamination happened in November from the 16th -24th as the employee came in sick and handled the candy.
Consumers should be on the look out for some of the symptoms including: fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, and nausea.
The risk of transmission of hepatitis A from the candy is considered low. Despite the low risk of transmission the FDA is highly encouraging consumers who ate candy after November 14th and have not be vaccinated for hepatitis A to consult their healthcare professional.
