March 23, 2019: Henry Avocado Recall For Potential Listeria Contamination

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.

Avocados subject to the recall include California-grown conventional and organic avocados packed at Henry Avocado’s packing facility in California and distributed in the states of Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. According to the company press release, all avocado shipments from the California packing facility are subject to the recall. The company further indicated that avocados imported from Mexico are not subject to the recall.

Consumers can identify the recalled avocados (non-organic) by the “Bravocado” stickers.  Henry Avocado organic avocados do not carry the “Bravocado” label on the sticker, however, these products are labeled “organic” and include “California” on the sticker.
