HEB Pulls Drink from Some Central Markets, Citing Possible Glass Shards

SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- H.E. Butt Grocery Co. pulled IZZE Sparkling Fruit Juice from the shelves of several Central Market HEB stores last week, after a customer in Southlake said she found shards of glass inside a bottle, according to published reports.

A call replaced to the company on Friday for more details was not immediately returned.

A Central Market spokeswoman was quoted as saying that the company believed this was an isolated incident. HEB said it is working closely with Izze Beverage Co.'s owner, PepsiCo, and the local distributor to investigate the incident.

It was not known on Friday whether HEB had put the products back on shelves.
