WASHINGTON (WATE) - Tyson Foods Inc. is recalling approximately 75,320 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nuggets nationwide that may contain pieces of plastic.

The recall affects five pound bags of "Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets – 16142-928" with a "Best if Used By" date of "Jan 26 2015" or Feb 16 2015."

The manufacturer codes "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14" can also be found on the bags.

These products were produced Jan. 26, 2014 or Feb. 16, 2014 and shipped nationwide to one retail warehouse club chain.  

The recall also affects 20 pound bulk packs of "Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters w/Rib Meat – 16142-861" with identifying case codes of "0264SDL0315 through 19" and "0474SDL0311 through 14."

These products were produced Jan. 26 and Feb. 16, 2014 and were shipped for institutional use in Indiana and Arkansas.               

The product bags bear the establishment number "P-13556."

Tyson discovered the problem after consumers complained that small pieces of plastic were found in the chicken nuggets. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.

Several people have reported minor oral injury due to the plastic pieces. 

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Tyson Foods Consumer Services toll free at (866) 328-3156.
