This morning you shouldn't be spreading avocado on your toast as a distributor has voluntarily recalled California-grown avocados in six states, including Florida, after a recent batch tested positive for listeria. Henry Avocado said there is no associated illnesses have been reported, noting that the recall was both voluntary and precautionary. The recalled avocados can be identified with a Bravocado sticker on the fruit. The organic-grown variety have stickers that are labeled “organic” and include “California” on the sticker.  Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall and may continue to be sold and consumed. Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause serious and potentially fatal infections in the elderly, young children, and other individuals with weakened immune systems. 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.
