A massive recall has just been issued that is affecting customers across the nation. Many people were stunned to learn that a super popular food may be contaminated with a deadly bacteria.
"California-grown avocados sold in bulk to retail stores in six states by the Henry Avocado Corporation are being recalled due to potential contamination with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, the company announced on Saturday," according to reports.
Avocados from California are quickly being pulled from store shelves after the deadly discovery was made. Officials say that the avocados were shipped to at least six different states around the nation.
"Henry Avocado is issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution due to positive test results on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection at its California packing facility," reads the company's statement. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the recall at this time.
The avocados in question include congenitally grown avocados as well as organic avocado. They were shipped to Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Wisconsin.
Now, a new report is coming in stating that some millennials aren't even worried about the recall. They claim to love their avocados so much that they are willing to take the risks.
"However, the announcement has not stopped millennials from partaking, like, at all. In fact, some have just resigned their fate. One Twitter user admitted, 'if I die, I die.' So, I guess that's one way to look at it," reported Delish.
Other users also shared the same sentiment on social media.
"Eating my breakfast burrito with avocado while reading about the avocado listeria recall and there was an avocado recall and here I am still eating avocados," wrote another consumer.
If you aren't as committed to the green superfood as these people, Delish is offering some advice. Our opinion is that you should definitely steer clear for the time being.
"Now, if you're not among the army of millennials refusing to acknowledge the recall, then listen up: Be on the lookout for either 'Bravocado' or 'California organic' stickers. These may contain listeria," wrote Delish.
