About Listeria

Listeria is a type of bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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.

Henry Avocado – Organic Label


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 convectional avocados (non-organic) by the “Bravocado” stickers; however, Henry Avocado organic avocados do not carry the “Bravocado” label on the sticker. Instead those products are labeled “organic” and include “California” on the sticker.

Retailers can identify Henry Avocado organic products by the bar code on the stickers. Henry Avocado is contacting all affected customers to confirm that the recalled products are immediately removed from store shelves.

Consumers should not eat the recalled avocados, and are urged to discard the product or return the product to the place of purchase.
