Nature's Touch Frozen Foods is voluntarily recalling its Signature Select Avocado Chunks due to potential contamination, the Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday.
The FDA, during a routine sampling, found a positive result for listeria in a sample bag of the product.
Listeria typically has short-term symptoms of fever, headache, nausea, diarrhea and stomach pain for healthy individuals, but can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA. The infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
The recalled avocados have a "Best By" date of Oct. 11, 2020. They were sold in Idaho and 14 other states at stores including Albertsons and Safeway.
Consumers who have purchased the product can discard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. The Nature’s Touch consumer service team can be reached at 1-877-850-2664 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WinCo Foods also issued a recall this week for red raspberries that were potentially contaminated with the norovirus. The 12-ounce packages with a "Best By" date of Feb. 13, 2021, were sold in Idaho and other western states.
