March 24, 2019 (Escondido) – Escondido-based Henry Avocado Corporation is recalling avocados after a government inspection at a California packing facility resulted in testing positive for Listeria. The recalled products have stickers reading Bravocado” on the exterior.

Listeria can cause fever, stiffness, nausea, diarrhea and other symptoms. It may be fatal to young children, elderly people or others with weakened immune systems. It can also cause stillbirths and miscarriages in pregnant women.

The recalled products were distributed throughout California and several other states.  There are no reported illnesses and the recall is voluntary. If you purchased these products, you can return them to the retailer for a refund, or discard them.

Avocados labeled organic from Henry Avocados are not included in the recall, nor are avocados from Mexico.
