The U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued a recall of chicken nuggets from a Georgia-based company over possible plastic pieces in the chicken.

More than 4,500 pounds of chicken nuggets from Perdue Foods LLC, sold in seven states, are included in the recall, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“The problem was discovered when the establishment received consumer complaints of small, solid, clear plastic inside the Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets,” the USDA said, according to the newspaper.

No one has been sickened or injured by the nuggets, which were sent to Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York, and Texas, the AJC reported.

The recalled chicken nuggets were made in September 2015.

"The recalled item includes eight-ounce, 18 piece boxes of Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets with the best before date 9/27/2016. The packages have the establishment number 'P-2617' inside the USDA mark of inspection," AL.com reported.

Anyone who has these products should not eat them, and either throw them away or return them to the store.
