A Southern California company is voluntarily recalling whole avocados over possible listeria contamination.


Henry Avocado, a grower and distributor based near San Diego, announced on Saturday that all conventional and organic avocados grown and packed in California are being recalled. The company says their product has been sold across California, Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and New Hampshire.

While there have been no reports of any illnesses associated with the avocados the company says it issued the voluntary recall after a routine inspection of its packing plant. During the inspection, samples tested positive for listeria.

Listeria is a bacteria that can cause fever and diarrhea. It may also cause more dangerous complications in pregnant women.

The company says avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry are not being recalled. They believe these are safe and have not been contaminated.
