SAN ANTONIO – A voluntary recall has been issued for certain H-E-B single-serving soups made with vegetable products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, H-E-B announced Friday.

H-E-B officials said that as part of a larger recall affecting several retailers, Mann Packing on Thursday recalled affected vegetable products, which were supplied to H-E-B and used in H-E-B Asian Noodle Soup Cups Beef and Chicken.

"Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," H-E-B said. "Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women."

H-E-B officials said there have not been any reports of illness regarding the H-E-B soups made with product supplied by Mann Packing.

All product has been removed from H-E-B stores, officials said. H-E-B is asking customers who may have purchased one of these products to return it to their nearest H-E-B store for a full refund.

Officials said the recall affects product sold in H-E-B stores in Texas, including the following:

  • H-E-B Asian Noodle Cup Beef, with UPC: 26010400000
  • H-E-B Asian Noddle Cup Chicken, with UPC: 26010100000

Customers who purchased the affected products can return the products to the store for a full refund, officials said.

Customers with questions or concerns may contact H-E-B Customer Service at 855-432-4438, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Central Standard Time, officials said. For more information about the Mann Packing recall, call 888-470-2681 or click here.
