Tyson Foods is recalling 75,000 pounds of chicken nuggets after customers complained about finding pieces of plastic in their food.

The recall affects 5-pound bags of white meat chicken nuggets sold at Sam's Club across the country.

The recall also includes 20-pound bulk packs of nugget-shaped breast patties that were shipped for institutional use in Indiana and Arkansas.

Tyson traced the problem to a product scraper inside a blending machine.
