Nothing comes between millennials and their avocado toast – even the morgue, dammit! We all know that the REAL reason none of us own a house is because of $8 avocado toast and $5 lattes (forget about the crippling student loan debt!), and apparently the dedication is driving people to eat the green stuff even when it poses a fatal risk to one’s health. Despite an avocado recall in six states, millennials are sticking to eating the stuff. Don’t you feel in awe of the future leaders of the world?!
Us Weekly says the Henry Avocado Corporation recalled the green fruits on Saturday. There is some concern the avocados might have listeria, which can cause muscle aches, fever, and flu-like symptoms. It’s particularly harmful to kids, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems. The company had this to say:
“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.We are voluntarily recalling our products and taking every action possible to ensure the safety of consumers who eat our avocados.”
The questionable avocados were recalled in California, Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida, New Hampshire, and North Carolina – so think twice before you get the guac at Chipotle, right? WRONG, says the millennial class:

“Samantha, they have a recall on the avocados”
If some avocados put me in the hospital then it will be WELL worth it.

That’s cute that millennials are so willing to stare down DOOM in its fugly face, but we’ll see how cute they think it is when they’re puking up avocado all over their avocado sneakers and avocado mattress and avocado socks and, uh, avocado conditioner? Avocado.
