Theory of mesic atom formation is applied to obtain primary populations of recently-discovered metastable states of hadronic He atoms. The calculated primary populations of the long-lived kaonic states in He are in agreement with the experimental data. Life times of these states exceed the measured value, suggesting a collisional quenching of metastable states. For antiprotonic. He, preliminary estimations of population are given.
