The smell and taste of the bread and buns were due to an unbalance in the yeast provided by the supplier and the affected items were distributed to H-E-B stores in Texas and Mexico.
The products do not present a health risk.
Affected items can be returned to the store for a full refund. H-E-B Customer Service can be reached at 1.855.432.4438 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for any customer questions or concerns.
