Avocados Shipped to Florida, New York, Illinois, Georgia and New Jersey Recalled Due to Salmonella

Coral Beach reports that Brooks Tropicals LLC, Homestead, Fla., has recalled 401 boxes of fresh, green-skinned avocados because a routine random sample test by the Food and Drug Administration returned a positive result for Salmonella.

Only fruit shipped with the lot number 2610 is included in the recall, according to the Aug. 8 notice on the company’s website. No illnesses have been reported in connection to the Brooks avocados and the FDA had not posted a recall notice as of Aug. 11.

The bulk fruit was shipped to five states: Florida, New York, Illinois, Georgia and New Jersey, according to the company statement.

No mention if there are ill persons linked to this recall.
