Texas grocer H-E-B has removed toilet paper — 2020’s retail MVP — from its pandemic-driven list of products with purchase limits, KSAT reports.

The San Antonio-based company updated the list Friday, removing  limits not just on TP but on paper towels, disinfecting and antibacterial wipes and hydrogen peroxide.

However, limits still apply to brisket, frozen chitterlings, disinfecting and antibacterial sprays, isopropyl alcohol swabs, first aid gloves, cleaning gloves and travel-size disinfectant wipes and sprays.

“Limits are a proven way to stabilize the supply chain, and we utilize this temporary tool to prevent supply disruption which could impact availability,” H-E-B spokeswoman Dya Campos told KSAT.

The limits affect all H-E-B stores, but do not apply to Central Market locations.
