AUSTIN (KXAN) — H-E-B grocery chain announced new purchasing limits for multiple household items in an attempt to to ensure availability to all customers.

Single and multipacks of toilet paper along with paper towels will be limited to two per purchase for all H-E-B stores, according to a June 27 update. Several other non-food items remained on H-E-B’s purchasing limit list including acetaminophen, hand soap and disinfecting sprays/wipes.

Brisket at all H-E-B stores will also be limited to two per purchase.

In late April, H-E-B limited meat and poultry products as the coronavirus pandemic affected the meat supply chain.
