Avocados recalled in 6 states over listeria concerns

Avocados are being recalled in 6 states over concerns of listeria.

A California-based company announced Saturday it is voluntarily recalling California-grown whole avocados over fears of possible listeria contamination.

Henry Avocado Corporation said in news release it announced the recall as part of a precaution after positive test results for Listeria monocytogenes were discovered on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection at its California packing facility.

“We are voluntarily recalling our products and taking every action possible to ensure the safety of consumers who eat our avocados,” said Phil Henry, president of Henry Avocado.

As of now, there are no reported illnesses associated with this recall.

The recalled products were packed at Henry Avocado’s packing facility in California and distributed in Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. All shipments from the facility are subject to recall, as the company did not begin packing there until late January 2019.

Nuts, avocados and salmon not as healthy as we thought?

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

Consumers can identify the recalled products by the “Bravocado” stickers. The organic avocados are labeled "organic” and include “California” on the sticker, according to the company.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections on children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

"You should seek medical care and tell the doctor about eating possibly contaminated food if you have a fever and other symptoms of possible listeriosis, such as fatigue and muscle aches, within two months after eating possibly contaminated food," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "This is especially important if you are pregnant, age 65 or older, or have a weakened immune system."

Henry Avocado said it is contacting all affected customers to confirm that the recalled products are immediately removed from store shelves. Retailers can identify Henry Avocado organic products by the bar code on the stickers.

Consumers who have purchased any recalled avocados are urged not to consume them, but to discard them or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Those with additional questions may contact Henry Avocado at (760) 745-6632, Ext 132 or visit the company's website.


Frozen Avocado Recalled Due to Potential Listeria Threat

WEDNESDAY, June 19, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Although no illnesses have yet been reported, the makers of Signature Select Avocado Chunks are issuing a product recall due to possible contamination with the listeria germ.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Nature's Touch Frozen Foods said the recall is "based on strict precautionary measures after the company was informed by the [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] that a routine sampling program found a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes in one sample bag of the Product."

The recall involves 12-ounce bags of frozen Signature Select Avocado Chunks with a "Best Before" date of Oct 11, 2020 on the back of the package, and UPC number 2113009412 also on the back of the package, the company said.

Infection with the Listeria monocytogenes bacterium can be serious, especially for infants and small children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.

"Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women," the company noted.

Consumers may have purchased the recalled avocado at any one of a number of supermarket chains, including Albertsons, Safeway, Safeway Community Markets, Carrs-Safeway, Eagle, Lucky, Pak N Save, Pavilions or Vons, the company said.

States affected include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, Wyoming, Texas and Utah.

"Consumers who have purchased the product should discard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund," Nature's Touch said.

Avocados Are Being Recalled In Six States Due To Possible Listeria Contamination

You might want to hold off on the avocado toast and guacamole this week, thanks to a mass recall on avocado that's impacting six different states. If you purchased avocados recently, you'll want to double-check the label before consuming them to make sure they're not part of this avocado recall for possible listeria contamination. According to the FDA recall announcement, California-based grower Henry Avocado Corporation is recalling both conventional and organic varieties, so here's what you should know before you toss your avocados.

On Saturday, March 23, the FDA issued an announcement that revealed that Henry Avocado had voluntarily chosen to recall all of its avocados that were grown in California and are now being sold in bulk at retail stores. According to the report, officials found traces of listeria "on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection at its California packing facility." Thus far, there have been no reported illnesses linked to the recall, but the company is reportedly issuing the notice out of an abundance of caution.

Here's how you can tell if your avocados are part of the recall, which is reportedly impacting consumers in Arizona, California, Florida New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. For non-organic avocados, you'll be able to tell if they could be a candidate for listeria contamination if they are covered with stickers that say "Bravocado."

Meanwhile, if you bought organic avocados, identifying the ones you should toss is a little trickier. Those avos will be labeled "organic" and also have the word "California" on the sticker, according to the FDA notice. If it makes things easier, you can also check the bar code to see if it matches the image below. The recall applies to all avocados that have been shipped from the California packing facility, which the company says they started working with in January 2019.

In the announcement, the Henry Avocado Corporation specifies that their avocados imported from Mexico are not part of the recall, so those are still safe to consume.

Still, considering that the FDA has previously found that about one in five avocados have traces of listeria on its peel according to a December 2018 study, I'd definitely recommend washing all your avocados before consuming them. During a two-year-long test, the FDA found that 17 percent of 361 avocados gathered from a larger sample had the bacteria on its peel, which could pose a risk of contamination if you were to cut into your avocado without washing it.

While listeria poisoning isn't nearly as prevalent or as responsible for as many deaths as salmonella, according to the Center for Disease Control, it's still not something to take lightly. According to the FDA recall announcement, the illness can be particularly serious for "young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems." In addition, pregnant women can suffer miscarriages or stillbirths as a result of the infection. Per the FDA report, healthy people "may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea" as a result of the infection, but it's better to practice an overabundance of caution as it's not something that anyone wants in their lives.

If you happen to live in one of the six states that are impacted by the recall, I'd hold off on ordering any avocado-based dishes while you're out at restaurants and take a look at produce you bought from the grocery. Listeria germs can also still spread quickly in cooler temperatures like those found in your refrigerator, so I'd double check the labels of your avocados as soon as possible.

Avocado recall: Avocados sold in California, 5 other states recalled for possible listeria

Check your avocados! A voluntary recall has been issued for Henry Avocado products sold in California, Arizona, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin due to possible listeria contamination.

Henry Avocado Corporation issued the FDA recall Saturday due to positive listeria results on environmental samples during a routine test.

The recalled products include California-grown conventional and organic avocados, which were packed in California and distributed to six states.

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

How to check your avocado:
Consumers can identify the conventional products by the "Bravocado" sticker. The organic products do not have the "Bravocado" sticker but are labeled "organic" and include "California" on the sticker. The organic products also can be identified by a bar code on the sticker.

There are no reported illnesses with the recall.

"We are voluntarily recalling our products and taking every action possible to ensure the safety of consumers who eat our avocados," said Phil Henry, president of Henry Avocado.


Here are the symptoms of listeria to keep in mind.

The symptoms of listeria infections are generally similar to other foodborne illnesses, the CDC says. And those may include fever, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea, according to the Mayo Clinic.

If the infection has reached beyond the gut, they can cause more serious symptom, such as:

But, as SELF explained previously, listeria poses a specific risk to pregnant people. If the infection has spread beyond the gut in someone who is pregnant, they may only experience flulike symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, and muscle aches, the CDC says. But the infection can still cause serious side effects, including miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or a life-threatening illness in the newborn.

Older adults and people with weakened immune systems are also at a greater risk for experiencing more severe symptoms. But, in general, healthy adults are able to recover from an infection without issues. If the infection is mild, there may not be any need for treatment, the Mayo Clinic says. For more severe symptoms, patients may be prescribed antibiotics.

To date, there haven't been any illnesses associated with the recall, and Henry Avocado says they are already contacting retailers to remove the affected avocados from stores. But the company is also urging any consumers who may have purchased them not to eat them. If you happen to have them in your kitchen, you can either toss them or return them for a refund.
