Does your Hill Country bread seem unusually chewy? Does it bounce when you throw it? When you make toast does it smell like a tire fire? Does it have “Best By April 29” stamped on the bag? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your bread may have rubber in it. But probably not.
HEB recalls are comparatively rare, and their products are pretty much always top notch. Nevertheless, things happen, and somebody found a bit of rubber in their bread. In an abundance of caution, HEB has recalled all Hill Country Fare sandwich bread with a best by date on or before April 29. While this seems to be an isolated incident, HEB doesn’t want to take any chances.
