Escondido recalling avocados due to possible Listeria contamination

The avocados that were recalled by Henry Avocado are seen in undated

Henry Avocado Corporation is recalling California-grown avocados sold in stores in several states, including Arizona.

The company says the offending fruit can be identified by stickers reading "bravocado", or, in the case of its organic avocados, stickers including the words "organic" and "California". The organic products also can be identified by a bar code on the sticker. Avocados imported from Mexico are not affected by the recall. The company's recall covers conventional and organic avocados grown and packed in California. Other examples of the rare, Saturday food recall posting by the FDA: last year's massive shell egg recall in a salmonella outbreak and Pinnacle Foods recalling all Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast food products after listeria was found at a plant in 2017. All shipments from the facility are subject to recall, however the company did not begin packing there until late January 2019.

There have been no reports of any illnesses associated with the avocados.

Henry Avocado is contacting all affected customers to confirm that recalled products are immediately removed from store shelves.

Listeria bacteria can cause serious-and sometimes fatal-illness, especially for children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Pregnant women can experience fever and other flu-like symptoms, but the infection can lead to miscarriages, stillbirth and premature delivery, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Customers are instructed not to consume recalled avocados, but to instead throw them away or return them to the point of purchase to receive a refund.

Henry Avocado issued the voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution due to positive test results on environmental samples taken during a routine inspection at its California packing facility.

The avocados may be contaminated with listeria.
