A California company has recalled avocados in six states over possible listeria contamination.
Henry Avocado is recalling both conventional and organic avocados that were sold in California, Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and New Hampshire. The recall is only for the fruit that was grown in California. Avocados imported from Mexico are not affected.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in announcing the recall, said it has not received any reports of illnesses associated with the recall.
Listeria can cause symptoms including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. It can also cause miscarriages.
Consumers can recognize the recalled product by looking for stickers that say “Bravocado” on them. (Organic avocados that are recalled don’t have the “Bravocado” sticker, but instead say “organic” and include “California” on the sticker.)
Thank you for alerting the public.
