Consumers are being warned to throw away all Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas purchased after November 14 as they may be contaminated with hepatitis A.

The firm said the employee tested positive for the virus had worked at the facility from November 16 to November 23, said Anna Bauer, president of Bauer's sweets, in a statement.

There have been no reports of illnesses associated with the sweets at this time. Customers who purchased any Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas after November 14 should throw the candies away. "These agencies have cleared us to continue operation".

The FDA is warning consumers of sweets manufactured at a facility in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky that may be contaminated with hepatitis A.

The agency recommends that those who have eaten the candies and are not vaccinated for hepatitis A to consult their doctors about whether they need a post-exposure prophylaxis treatment.

Hepatitis A is a virus that attacks the body through liver inflammation.

Although many who are infected show no symptoms, it can take a few months for the illness to pass.

Bauer's sweets did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for additional comment. "Hepatitis A is usually spread when a person ingests fecal matter - even in microscopic amounts - from an infected person; this can happen when an infected person prepares food without appropriate hand hygiene, even before that person shows symptoms of illness", the recall said.

Symptoms of the disease 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", says the FDA.
