Before you bite into that avocado toast, you should know that whole avocados are being recalled because of a possible listeria contamination. Henry Avocado Corporation is voluntarily recalling both organic and non-organic varieties sold in Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, according to the FDA. No one has gotten sick yet, but the recall went into effect after a routine inspection at the company’s packing facility in California tested positive for the bacteria.
Avocados from Mexico are not included in the recall and shoppers in the six states listed should look for two types of stickers to identify the affected products. Organic avocados are labeled “organic” and have “California” on the sticker, while conventional products - the non-organic ones - have a “Bravocado” label on the sticker. If you think yours are at risk, throw them out or return them to the store you bought them for a refund.
