H-E-B Issues Baby Food Recall
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- San Antonio, TX -- March 15, 2006 -- H-E-B announced today that it has issued a recall of its entire H-E-B Baby Food and Mom's Organic Choice product lines. As of this afternoon, all H-E-B baby food and Mom's Organic Choice product lines was removed from shelves due to a few customer reports of pieces of glass being found inside the baby food jars of H-E-B peas, carrots and applesauce.
According to Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice-President of Public Affairs, there have been no reports of injuries associated with the incidents, however the company is taking the issue very seriously and taking all necessary precautions.
"Though these reports have been isolated to just a few products in the H-E-B baby food and Mom's Organic Choice line, 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 and Mom's Organic Choice products from our shelves," said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice-President of Public Affairs.
Herron went on to say that H-E-B will launch a full investigation into the incidents and work closely with its H-E-B baby food suppliers to ensure all safety measures are being taken when manufacturing the product.
H-E-B is encouraging anyone who has any H-E-B baby food and/or Mom's Organic Choice product in their pantries to remove it and take it to their nearest H-E-B store for a full refund.
Customers with any questions or concerns can call H-E-B customer service at 1-800-432-3113.
