Company recalls baby food after customer reports rubber in product

- A Texas-based baby food company has issued a precautionary recall of its entire H-E-B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups after a customer reported finding a small piece of rubber inside the product. H-E-B removed the item from store shelves but has not received any reports of injury or illness related to the recall.

“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,” Winell Herron, H-E-B group vice president of public affairs, diversity and environmental affairs, said in a news release. “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.”

The company has launched a full investigation and is working with H-E-B Baby Food manufacturer to ensure proper safety measures are in place, it said in the release. The company encourages customers who have purchased affected products to return it to an H-E-B store for a full refund.
