There seems to be an issue people are having with cutting avocados.
It’s a delicate fruit (yes, fruit) that needs to be sliced carefully in order to get all that yummy avocado goodness out. You need to take your time with it. YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL.
Injuries suffered from cutting and peeling avocados are on the rise, seriously. To the point that medical professionals are asking supermarkets to put warning labels on the fruit.
