Wash Avocados Before Eating Them / Lavar paltas o aguacates antes de comerlos

 

 

The Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers to wash their avocados before eating them, because of the risk of bacterial contamination.
In 2014, the FDA began monitoring avocados as part of a “new proactive and preventive approach” that was meant to stop dangerous food before it reached the market.
Their sampling revealed that a small percentage of domestically grown and imported avocados were contaminated with bacteria: Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes, . both were detected and further analysis indicated that the Listeria had the potential to be pathogenic.
As a result of their findings, the FDA is urging consumers to thoroughly wash avocados before eating them.

La Administración de Drogas y Alimentos (EU) advierte a los consumidores que laven sus paltas/aguacates antes de comerlos, debido al riesgo de contaminación bacteriana.
En 2014, la FDA comenzó a monitorear los aguacates como parte de un "nuevo enfoque proactivo y preventivo" que tenía como objetivo detener los alimentos peligrosos antes de que llegaran al mercado.
Su muestreo reveló que un pequeño porcentaje de aguacates cultivados en el país e importados estaban contaminados con bacterias: Salmonella y Listeria monocytogenes. ambos fueron detectados y análisis posteriores indicaron que la Listeria tenía el potencial de ser patógena.
Como resultado de sus hallazgos, la FDA insta a los consumidores a lavar bien los aguacates antes de comerlos.
