SAN ANTONIO (KXAN) — H-E-B announced a precautionary recall Friday of its entire H-E-B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups.

The grocery store company removed the products from their shelves out of an abundance of caution due to a customer report of a small piece of rubber found inside a single container.

H-E-B says there have been no reports of injuries or illnesses associated with the “isolated incident.”

“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,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “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, which has more than 380 stores in Texas and Mexico, has launched an investigation into the incident and notified the Food and Drug Administration. Customers with any questions can contact H-E-B Customer Service at 1-855-432-4438 on Friday, Nov. 18 until 11 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. thereafter.
