AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you have a stack of H-E-B tortillas on your counter, you might want to check them to make sure they’re not on a recall list.

Due to the possible presence of foreign material, on Tuesday, H-E-B issued a voluntary and precautionary recall for the H-E-B Homestyle White Corn Tortillas. Crews noticed the problem during quality assurance product reviews at their manufacturing facility.

The recall is specific to only the 12 count and 30 count packages of H-E-B Homestyle White Corn Tortillas with a Best Buy Date of Jan. 22, 2015 and earlier. H-E-B is asking customers that may have purchased the impacted product to return it to their H-E-B store for a full refund.

  • H-E-B Homestyle White Corn Tortillas 30 ct. packages with Best By dates of Jan. 22, 2015 and earlier

There have been no consumer complaints or reports of illness at this time.

H-E-B is also expanding it’s voluntary and precautionary recall of select items containing seasoning provided by Southern Style Spice. H-E-B is expanding the recall to include H-E-B Texas Ranch Casserole and H-E-B Gumbo due to undeclared peanut allergens in the spice blend ingredient components possibly used for these specific items.
