Another Recall

A California avocado producer, Henry Avocado Corporation has issued a voluntary recall because of the potential that the California-grown whole avocados could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

The company says it has taken this step out of “an abundance of caution” based on positive test results on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection. The company claims there are no reported illneses associated with the recall.

The avocados in question were distributed and sold at stores in six states including North Carolina.

Most of the avocados sold at stores in our area are actually from Mexico, which produces well over 60% of all the avocados grown in the world and over 80% of all those sold in the US.

Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall and may continue to be sold and consumed, the company says. The company also says that all the suspected avocados should have been removed already from stores where they were sold.

One way that consumers can identify the recalled products at retail is by the “Bravocado” label on the sticker on the outside of the fruit.

The listeria contamination was on the outside of the fruit, so thoroughly washing your avocados before cutting them open (always a good idea) will likely get rid of any contamination.
