(CNNMoney) 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.
