SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B issued a recall for its Blue Cheese Salmon Burgers on Monday after finding that the burgers contained wheat, a known allergen that was not declared on the product’s label.
The voluntary recall by the company affects items sold behind the seafood counter, in the seafood department and in the Meal Simple area in H-E-B retail stores throughout Texas. To date, the company has reported one illness associated with the allergen.
The company said people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to wheat run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
“Affected products can be returned to the store for a full refund,” the company said. “Customers with any questions or concerns can contact H-E-B Customer Relations at 1-855-432-4438 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central Standard Time.”
The company reported that all affected products have been removed from store shelves.
