(CNN) Tyson is recalling over 75,000 pounds of chicken nuggets.

Some customers have reported finding small pieces of plastic in their food.

The recall includes five-pound bags of frozen, white meat chicken nuggets sold at Sam's Club stores 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.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine.

The company says complaints of plastic pieces in the nuggets were received by a "small number of customers."
