H-E-B removes purchase limits on toilet paper

Limits on chicken, pork and turkey have been removed


SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B has updated the purchase limits for products customers can purchase as the coronavirus pandemic continues, including ever-so-coveted toilet paper.

The product limits vary at select stores and are an effort to “protect the supply chain and make sure our customers can find the items they need,” H-E-B spokesperson Julie Bedingfield previously told KSAT.

All H-E-B stores are still limiting brisket purchases but toilet paper has dropped off the product limit list.

Toilet paper has been a hot commodity during the coronavirus pandemic. When consumers started panic-buying items, H-E-B had to place limits on products but has since removed purchase limits on many items.

H-E-B stores will need to abide by the following purchase limit for food items:

  • Brisket – Limit 2

Other items that are not food-related but are limited for all H-E-B customers are listed below:

  • Paper towels – limit 2
  • Acetaminophen – 2 items total (includes baby, trial and travel sizes, OTC)
  • H-E-B Acid Controller/Famotidine and Pepcid 50ct and larger – Limit 1
  • H-E-B Acid Controller/Famotidine and Pepcid smaller than 50ct – Limit 2
  • Disinfecting & antibacterial sprays – 2 items
  • Disinfecting & antibacterial wipes – 2 items
  • Trial and travel size disinfecting & antibacterial sprays/wipes – 2 items
  • Hand sanitizer – 10 items
  • Hand soap – 2 items
  • Hydrogen peroxide – 2 items
  • Rubbing (Isopropyl) Alcohol/swabs – 2 items
  • First Aid and Cleaning Gloves – 2 items

Product limits that apply to H-E-B stores in the border region include:

  • Baby wipes – limit 2
  • Disinfecting & antibacterial sprays – 1 item
  • Disinfecting & antibacterial wipes – 1 item
  • Eggs, less than 30 count – limit 4
  • Eggs, 30 count or greater – limit 2

Central Market stores are not included in these limits, according to H-E-B officials. For more information on limits at Central Market stores, click here.
