Henry Avocado, a grower and distributor based near San Diego, is voluntarily recalling whole avocados over possible Listeria contamination. A routine inspection of the company’s packing plant revealed samples that tested positive for listeria. There have been no known reports of any illnesses associated with the avocados.

Henry Avocado reports the avocados were sold in bulk across California, Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina and New Hampshire. The avocados included in the recall include conventional and organic avocados grown and packed in California. Initially no affected avocados were reported shipped to Illinois.

Henry Avocado said avocados distributed after import from Mexico were not being recalled and are considered safe.

Henry Avocado is a well-known supplier of avocados since 1925, and is a year-round marketer, distributor and seasonal grower of fresh conventional and organic avocados from California, Mexico, Peru and Chile.

Listeria is a genus of bacteria. The major human pathogen in the genus Listeria is L. monocytogenes, which is usually the causative agent of the relatively rare bacterial disease listeriosis.

Humans are infected by eating food contaminated with the bacteria.

Listeriosis can cause serious illness in …
pregnant women,
newborns,
adults with weakened immune systems,
and the elderly.

Healthy adults and children can suffer minor gastroenteritis; but healthy individuals, who have been severely infected can suffer fever and diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal symptoms.

Dangerous complications are possible in pregnant women.

In non-invasive listeriosis, the bacteria are usually contained within the digestive tract, causing mild symptoms lasting only a few days. General supportive care is indicated. If there is muscle pain and fever, mild cases can be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers. Diarrhea and gastroenteritis can be treated with over-the-counter medications.

Invasive listeriosis, involves bacteria that spreads to the circulatory system and central nervous system. Treatment includes intravenous delivery (IV) of high-dose antibiotics and admission to a hospital. Duration of hospital care varies depending on how widespread the infection is, but is usually no less than 2 weeks. Proper antibiotics must be administered, depending on the patient’s pre-existing condition.

Prompt treatment of listeriosis during pregnancy is critical to prevent bacterial infection of the fetus. Antibiotics can be recommended for pregnant women with non-invasive listeriosis as a precaution.

Complications of listeriosis during pregnancy include stillbirths, preterm labor, meningitis, and newborn sepsis (body’s abnormal negative response to infection that causes injury to tissues and organs and possibly shock).
