Before you pay Guac extra, listen to this: Avocados that are sold in six states are voluntarily recalled, and customers are warned about the possibility of Listeria in their avocados, so A Recall Notice posted on the website of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In particular, the Henry Avocado Corporation voluntarily retrieves California-grown avocados that were sold to a routine in Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Government test showed positive results for Listeria monocytogenes in the company's California packaging plant. Avocados affected by the recall will be labeled with either a "Bravocado" label or, if they are organic, both "Organic" and "California" on the label.
The recall does not include avocados imported from Mexico imported by Henry. Avocado Corporation also sells.
Here are the symptoms of Listeria to consider.
The symptoms of Listeria infections are generally similar to other foodborne diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says. These include fever, muscle pain, nausea and diarrhea according to the Mayo Clinic
When the infection reaches across the intestines, they may cause more severe symptoms such as:  Headache
But SELF stated […] that listeria pose a particular risk to pregnant women. If the infection has spread beyond the intestine in pregnant persons, only flu-like symptoms such as fever, fatigue, and muscle pain can occur, the CDC . However, the infection can still cause serious side effects, including miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening neonatal disease.
Older adults and people with weakened immune systems are also more affected by severe symptoms. In general, however, healthy adults can easily recover from an infection. If the infection is mild, there may be no need for treatment, [May says the Mayo Clinic . For serious symptoms, antibiotics may be prescribed to patients.
So far there has been no disease associated with the recall, and Henry Avocado says they are already contacting distributors to remove the affected avocados from the stores. The company urges every consumer who buys them not to eat them. If you have them in your kitchen, you can either throw them or return them for a refund.
