INSIDER analyzed government data and found 152 instances of avocado-related hospital visits last year. But the true number of avocado-related ER visits is closer to 8,900, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission told INSIDER. Most of those hurt were injured while cutting avocados, although at least one slipped off a stool while picking them. People injured by avocados are typically female, Caucasian, and millennial-aged.
