An H-E-B spokesperson said Thursday the recall was precautionary after routine maintenance revealed the broken metal in the ice cream processing equipment. H-E-B hasn't received a report of broken metal found in ice cream. But, because broken metal doesn't just disintegrate into nothingness, there might be ice cream out there with broken metal.

So, the chain recalled:

EconoMax Neopolitan, in 4-quart containers, best by June 1-June 23, 2019, and 56-ounce containers, best by June 24, 2019.

EconoMax Vanilla, in 4-quart containers, best by May 24-June 17, 2019, and 56-ounce containers, best by May 26-27, 2019.
