Interesting that the ones imported from Mexico are unaffected. It's only the Californian grown ones.

Yea, well when we treat the people who handle your food like shiat, why are we surprised there's shiat in our food?

All meats, including deli and hot dog meat, can be carriers of Listeria. However, the bacteria can be killed by cooking at high heat. The temperature required to kill off Listeriosis is 165F, or 74C. Make sure all vegetables are boiled or cooked at the suggested temperature or higher, too.

thankfully this will have nothing to do with unregulated reclaimed water or maybe open air aqueducts being used for food crops. Yeah, sure the illegals must have done all that//

Subby is WRONG! THERE HAVE NOT BEEN ANY INSTANCES OF ILLNESS REPORTED! The company is recalling them as a precaution. Jesus at least read the article you are linking!

FTA:

As of now, there are no reported illnesses associated with this recall.

Does ANYONE know which these "six States" are? I Hass 2 noi!

DV1976: Does ANYONE know which these "six States" are? I Hass 2 noi!


Didn't you read the article? Here is part of the story.

"The recalled products were packed at Henry Avocado's packing facility in California and distributed in Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. All shipments from the facility are subject to recall, as the company did not begin packing there until late January 2019."

Consumers can identify the recalled products by the "Bravocado" stickers. The organic avocados are labeled "organic" and include "California" on the sticker, according to the company.

I've always been a little wary of "organic" produce, especially the fact some growers use manure which could potentially contaminate the produce with fecal coliform and other nasties.

That, and the fact  that organic produce costs a lot more which seems like a bit of a scam to me.

Why didn't the almighty government stop this from happening? Oh yeah, their food inspections are worthless.

What 'this'? No illnesses have been reported, the company found the listeria & then recalled the avocados.
