Avocado Recall Affects Six States – Including Wisconsin
A recall involving avocados has now grown to affect six states across the country - including Wisconsin. San Diego-based grower Henry Avocado has voluntarily recalled their bulk product. According to the Food and Drug Administration, the concern with the avocados is the possibility of listeria contamination.
The avocados in question carry a sticker on them that say "Bravocado"; organic varieties of the same brand carry stickers that say "organic" and "California" - according to news reports. The grower also purchased some of their product from Mexico for distribution in the United States; those specific avocados are not included as part of the voluntary recall.
At the present time, there have been no medical illnesses linked to the possible contamination. The Henry Avocado products were distributed in bulk in six states: Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
Signs to look for in relation to listeria concerns are the following: fever and diarrhea. The concerns for complications are very serious for pregnant women.
