Texas based grocery store H-E-B has issued a voluntary recall of its entire H-E-B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups product line only. The item was removed from store shelves "out of abundance of caution due to a customer report of a small piece of rubber found inside a single container of one variety of the product."
Although there has been no reports of injury, illnesses or deaths related to this recall, the grocery chain is taking this issue very seriously and taking all the necessary precautions.
According to Will Herron, H-E-B's Group Vice President of Public Affairs, he said in a statement: ""Though we have only received one report of a foreign material in H‑E‑B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups, as a company, we are committed to absolute and complete food safety. As a result of that commitment, coupled with the fact that we are dealing with a children's product, we have made the decision to pull all of our H‑E‑B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups from our shelves."
H-E-B said that they are launching a full investigation into the incident and working with its H-E-B Baby Food manufacturer to assure that the product is safe.
