Health authorities urge people to wash the avocados before eating. Fruit skin can be bacteria that can cause serious illness.
Bacteria that cause disease in Avocado Skin
The US Food and Drug Administration has found that fruit skin may contain the amount of trace of pathogenic bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.
Researchers who tested more than 1,000 import and local avocado skins in 2014-2016 found Listeria monocytogenes on nearly one skin in every 5 avocados. 361 domestic and import avocados skin samples, 64, or 17.73 percent, was tested positive.
The study also tested 1,615 avocados for salmonella and laser. It was positive for bacteria less than 1.
Listeria Monocytogenes and Listeriosis
Listeria monocytogenes causes Listeriosis to have 1,600 patients with bacterial infection and kill about 260 Americans every year.
For many people, illnesses can cause infection, but it can be serious and life-threatening for some people. Pregnant women, babies, the elderly, and those with a weak immune system are more vulnerable to serious infections.
Listeriosis symptoms include high fever, nausea, abdominal pain, severe headache, stiffness, and diarrhea.
Peel What Is Avocado Fruit Wash
The FDA should be thoroughly washed off the avocados robbery, despite the fact that the dirt and bacteria in the dark green avocado leather can cause a slipping of the knife and the edible meat portion of the fruit. Drying the dough and cleaning the fruit without slicing a clean towel can further reduce the risk of the disease.
The FDA said that people were eating avocados frequently when eating fruits before eating and eating longer after fruiting, helping reduce risk for the treatment of diabetes.
"These applications generally limit the amount of pathogens, if any, it is possible to expose consumers," the FDA said.
