H-E-B has issued a precautionary recall of its entire H-E-B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups product line.

The affected baby food was removed from store shelves out of an 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.

"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," Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs said in a statement.

H-E-B says that it has launched a full investigation into the incident and is working closely with its H-E-B Baby Food manufacturer to ensure all safety measures are being taken when manufacturing the product.

To date, there have been no reports of injury or illness associated with this isolated incident, however the company is taking the issue very seriously and taking all necessary precautions.

H-E-B is encouraging customers who have any H-E-B Baby Food 2 pack 4 oz. cups in their pantries to return the product to their nearest H-E-B store for a full refund.
