Tyson Foods says they are voluntarily recalling their frozen chicken nuggets in response to reports that small pieces of plastic had been found in some of the nuggets.
The 5-pound bags of white meat nuggets are sold at Sam's Clubs across the country. The company says products sold at all other retailers are not affected by the recall.
Tyson Foods says the recalled product was produced in a two-day period on a single line at one of the company's 40 chicken production facilities. According to CNN, the U.S. Department of Agriculture traced the issue to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
"Though the plastic pieces have been found in a very small number of packages, out of an abundance of caution, the company is recalling 75,320 pounds of product," the company said in a statement.
CNN reports that some customers complained of minor oral injuries after eating the nuggets.
The 5-pound chicken nuggets bags have manufacturer codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14." The establishment number "P-13556" can also be found on the bags. They were shipped to Sam's Club stores across the U.S. and in Puerto Rico in late January and early February.
