NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Perdue Foods recalled approximately 4,530 pounds of chicken nuggets sold under the Applegate brand because they could contain pieces of plastic.

The eight-ounce packages recalled have a "best before date" of September 27, 2016.

The company received complaints about small, clear plastic inside the chicken nuggets.

The USDA said customers who bought the recalled items should throw them away or return them to the point of purchase.
