"An investigation by our local health department and the FDA found that the risk of contamination to the candy made during this time is extremely low". When symptoms occur, they can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months.

Common symptoms can include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine and pale stool.
