CNN - Tyson is recalling 75,320 pounds of chicken nuggets after some customers complained about finding small pieces of plastic in their food.

The recall includes Tyson 5-pound bags of frozen, white meat chicken nuggets that were sold at Sam's Club stores across the country.

Complaints of plastic pieces in the nuggets were received by a "small number of customers," the company said Friday. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine, according the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The affected chicken nuggets were produced on two days, Jan. 26 and Feb.16, on a single line at one of the company's 40 chicken production facilities.

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.
