The recalled products include California-grown conventional and organic avocados, which were packed in California and distributed to six states.

Avocado imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocado is not subject to recall and may be consumed.

How to check your avocado:
Consumers can identify the conventional products of the "Bravocado" sticker. The organic products do not have the "Bravocado" sticker, but are labeled "organic" and include "California" on the sticker. The organic products can also be identified with the barcode on the sticker.

Customers who have purchased recalled goods are encouraged not to consume them, but are encouraged to dispose of them or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

There are no reported diseases with the recall.

Consumers with additional questions can contact Henry Avocado at (760) 745-6632, Ext 132 or visit
