WASHINGTON (Circa) - It's no secret that many people are obsessed with avocados. But the obsession is getting dangerous for some stars. Joy Behar, co-host of "The View," recently went to the E.R. because she injured herself opening an avocado.
She returned back to work after a brief absence.
“I was trying to open up an avocado and I stuck the knife into the pit to get it out and I stabbed myself,” Behar said.
Behar isn’t the only one who has suffered from this type of accident. “Bachelorette” season 10 star Andi Dorfman had to have surgery on her hand after cutting an avocado. Even Oscar winning actress Meryl Streep has also been a victim.
People are starting to call this injury "avocado hand."
Please proceed with caution before you enjoy your next avocado.
