Market Alert: Henry Avocados

By Food Safety, Market Alert, News No Comments

Please be advised Daylight Foods is not affected by this recall.

HENRY AVOCADO RECALLS WHOLE AVOCADOS BECAUSE OF POSSIBLE HEALTH RISK
Henry Avocado Corporation is voluntarily recalling California-grown whole avocados sold in bulk at retail stores because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Henry Avocado is issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution due to positive test results on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection at its California packing facility. There are no reported illnesses associated with this recall.
The recalled products: California-grown conventional and organic avocados — 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 packing facility are subject to the recall (Henry Avocado did not begin packing there until late January 2019). Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall and may continue to be sold and consumed.

Please Note – Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado are not subject to the recall and may continue to be sold and consumed.

Feel free to call us with any questions regarding this recall on our customer service line 408.284.7300.
