Attention, parents! A new H-E-B baby food recall was announced November 18, after a consumer found a small piece of rubber in one of its two-pack 4 oz. cups. The Food and Drug Administration announced that out of an abundance of caution, all varieties of the two-pack 4 oz. cups made by the Texas-based baby food manufacturer are being recalled.
Parents should know no injuries have been reported in association with this recall, which is obviously a relief. And in a statement Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs clarified, "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."
Customers can call H-E-B at 1-855-432-4438 for more information. The company is reportedly conducting a full investigation to discover how the piece of rubber wound up in the baby food in the first place.
