FDA, Henry Avocado Corporation Recall Avocados in Six States

— March 27, 2019

Earlier this month, Henry Avocado Corporation and the FDA issued a voluntary recall of conventional and organic avocados in six states.

If you’re a fan of avocados, you may want to check the label. According to Henry Avocado Corporation and the FDA, a voluntary recall was recently issued for certain avocados sold in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, California, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin over concerns they may be contaminated with Listeria. The recall, which was issued on Saturday, came after a routine test returned “positive Listeria results on environmental samples.”

According to the notice, the affected products include “California-grown conventional and organic avocados, which were packed in California and distributed” to the six states mentioned above. It’s important to note, however, that “avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall.”

The recalled products can be identified by the ‘Bravocado’ sticker on each avocado. However, while the organic avocados included in the recall don’t have the ‘Bravocado’ sticker, they are labeled organic and have a ‘California’ sticker on them.

If you have one of the recalled avocados in your home, you should either throw it away or return it for a full refund. If you have additional questions or concerns, contact Henry Avocado at (760) 745-6632, Ext 132 or visit the company’s website at
