SEDALIA, Mo., April 6 (UPI) -- Tyson Foods Inc. recalled more than 75,000 pounds of chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with small pieces of plastic and other extraneous materials.

The food company said it received consumer complaints that small pieces of plastic were found in the chicken products resulting in minor oral injury. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine in the Sedalia, Mo., facility.

The recalled fully cooked chicken nuggets include:

-- 5-pound bags of Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets with a "best if used by” date of Jan. 26, 2015 or Feb. 16, 2015. These products were shipped nationwide to one retail warehouse club chain.
-- 20-lb. bulk packs of Spare Time Fully Cooked Nugget-Shaped Chicken Breast Pattie Fritters with Rib Meat shipped for institutional use in Indiana and Arkansas.

Consumers should contact Tyson Foods Consumer Services toll free at 1-866-328-3156.
