H-E-B customers who recently bought beef at one of its stores might want to take a closer look at what they brought home.
H-E-B has announced it is following the precautionary recall called for by Sam Kane Beef Processors which said there might be foreign material in some of its ground beef and ground chuck products, according to an H-E-B press release. The processing company is just one of several that H-E-B uses.
The grocery store stressed that "no injuries or illnesses have been reported."
