H-E-B has placed product limits on their brisket purchases at all grocery stores. As coronavirus continues to shape what our days look like, many businesses such as those who employ frontline workers and those who do not have had to make adjustments. H-E-B is one such business and has just announced that it has imposed a new product limit on all stores. Now, all customers are limited to only buying one brisket item at all H-E-B locations.

However, brisket is not the only thing that H-E-B has been forced to put restrictions on. The grocery store chain will continue to adhere to product limits on many non-food items, including things such as specific cleaning and sanitation products as well as first aid gear.

In May during the first wave of the coronavirus, H-E-B announced that they would enforce limits on several types of meat and poultry products, but those have been lifted.

(From the H-E-B website) The following product restrictions apply to all H-E-B stores:

Food items (all H-E-B stores)

  • Brisket – Limit 1

Non-food items (all H-E-B stores)

  • 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 – 4 items
  • Hydrogen peroxide – 2 items
  • Rubbing (Isopropyl) Alcohol/swabs – 2 items
  • First Aid and Cleaning Gloves – 2 items

As the coronavirus continues to be a strange and undeniable presence throughout the year of 2020, many stores, workers, employees, and customers have had to make significant adjustments to their lives. Product limits seem to be one of the many changes that many people have had to adjust to.
