Avocado recall the pits for Henry Co.
The Henry Avocado Corporation has voluntarily recalled avocados grown in California due to potential listeria contamination discovered during a government inspection of its packing facility.
While the pertinent avocados, both organic and conventional, may not be distributed in California, consumers can identify them by Henry Avocado’s “Bravocado” stickers and brand. The company’s organic avocados are labeled “organic” and “California.”
Phil Henry, president of Henry Avocado, which is based in Escondido, said, “We are voluntarily recalling our products and taking every action possible to ensure the safety of consumers who eat our avocados.”
Avocados from Mexico and distributed by Henry “are not subject to recall and may continue to be sold and consumed,” according to Henry. The company is urging consumers to discard any Henry avocados.
