Charlevoix (WWJ) – There’s a warning going out today about a popular brand of Michigan candy.
Murdick’s Famous Fudge is asking consumers not to eat its wrapped caramels, peanut brittle, cashew brittle or saltwater taffy because it may have been touched by employees sickened by a norovirus.
The candy was sold at the Charlevoix Murdick’s Famous Fudge store on Bridge Street only. This recall does not affect any other Murdick’s locations.
Murdick’s issued a voluntary recall after an investigation into people sickened by eating the caramels was traced back to employee illnesses.
The recalled candy was sold between July 23rd and August 3. Those who purchased it are asked to throw it out or return it to Murdick’s Famous Fudge in Charlevoix for a refund.
Symptoms of the norovirus usually include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramping. People may have a low-grade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and a general sense of tiredness. The illness is usually brief, with symptoms lasting only 1 or 2 days.
Consumers with questions may contact the company at (231) 547-4213.
