As the state opens back up, H-E-B has decided to reduce the items with purchase limits. All food items and toilet paper are now available for purchase without limits.
The current list of rationed items includes only non-food items.
Acetaminophen – 2 items total (includes baby, trial and travel sizes, OTC)
Baby wipes – 2 items
Disinfecting & antibacterial sprays – 2 items
