Avocado Recalled for Potential Listeria

FDA testing found listeria in one of the packages.

Avocado Chunks

Nature’s Touch is voluntary recalling Signature Select Avocado Chunks due to potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. These actions are being described as "strict precautionary measures" after the company was informed by the FDA that a routine sampling program found a positive result in one bag of the product.

To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the 12-ounce packages of the product, which was distributed to 15 states via nine grocery stores that include Albertsons, Safeway, Eagle and Vons. Consumers who have purchased the product should discard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
