Avocados Recalled by California Company
MONDAY, March 25, 2019 -- Possible listeria contamination has led to a recall of avocados by Henry Avocado, a grower and distributor based near San Diego.
The recall is for conventional and organic avocados that were grown and packed in California and sold in bulk across California, Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and New Hampshire, the Associated Press reported.
The recall was issued by the company after samples tested positive for listeria during a routine inspection of its packing plant.
No cases of illness associated with the avocados have been reported. Listeria bacteria can cause fever and diarrhea and more dangerous complications in pregnant women, the AP reported.
