Avocado Recall For Listeria


Avocados grown in California by Henry Avocado Corporation are being recalled due to potential contamination with the bacterium listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled products include non-organic and organic avocados. They were packed at Henry Avocado Corporation’s facility in California and distributed to six states: Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion and loss of balance. Patients may experience diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms, as well as convulsions. It can be treated with antibiotics.

Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall and may continue to be sold and consumed.

One way to check if your have a recalled avocado is by the “Bravocado”label on the sticker on the outside of the fruit.

Henry Avocado organic products do not carry the “Bravocado” label but can be identified instead by the “organic” and “California” labels on the sticker.

If you’ve already purchased the avocados, do not eat them. You can discard them or return them to the store for a refund. Stay safe and guac on!
