Sweets Not So Sweet: Texas Chain H-E-B Issues Recall
A familiar brand in Texas has told customers to bring back 2 items if purchased recently.
On April 29, 2022, H-E-B recalled both their Two Bite Brownies and Simply Delicious Cookies due to metal fragments found in the food items.
According to a release from H-E-B itself, the chain has said the following:
"H-E-B is voluntarily issuing a recall for H-E-B Bakery Two Bite Brownies (12 oz) and H-E-B Simply Delicious Cookies with Brownie Bites Party Trays for potential metal fragments in product. The potentially affected products were manufactured by an outside supplier and distributed only to H-E-B and Joe V’s Smart Shop stores in Texas and Mexico."
"All products related to this recall have been removed from store shelves. H-E-B made the decision to issue a recall upon investigation of two consumer complaints. As soon as we confirm that the product meets our high quality and safety standards, H-E-B will have the products back on shelves."
This isn't the first recall for the chain this year. Earlier in January, the company had to recall Dole Fresh Vegetables. However this was no fault of H-E-B, as Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc initiated the recall.
H-E-B encouraged those who brought the faulty product to return the item to the store for a complete refund. The company also said that any customers with concerns are welcome to call their customer service line at 1-855-432-4438.
