    Avocados are healthy but can cause food poisoning. As recently as March 2019, avocados have been recalled for listeria contamination. Along with listeria, salmonella is also a common cause of avocado food poisoning and can occur when bacteria transfer from the peel to the flesh when being cut.

    CFIA advises to not consume, serve, use, sell, or distribute recalled products. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.

    Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk. Although infected pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms, the infection can lead to premature delivery, infection of the newborn or even stillbirth. In severe cases of illness, people may die.

    In case you are experiencing Listeria monocytogenes symptoms it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
