Tyson Foods is recalling more than 75,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets after customers reported finding pieces of plastic in the food.

The recall pertains to five-pound bags of Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets and 20-pound bulk packs of Spare Time Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters with Rib Meat that were sold at Sam's Club stores.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that consumer complaints included one of a minor mouth injury in someone who ate the nuggets.  The department said the problem resulted from a product scraper inside a blending machine.
