If your kids love chicken nuggets, you might have some stockpiled in your freezer. Perdue Farms is recalling over 15,000 pounds of frozen chicken nuggets after it was found that they may contain pieces of plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The recall involves 30,468, 8-ounce. boxes of Applegate Naturals Chicken Nuggets was announced Tuesday. The affected boxes were produced on Feb. 5, 2014, have a "best before" date of 02/05/15 and the establishment number P2617.

Applegate says the nuggets were sold locally at Giant, Safeway and Whole Foods stores.

The problem was discovered after Perdue received several complaints about small pieces of plastic being found in the product. There have been no reported injuries.

The company pulled the product from shelves on Aug. 8, but since it is a frozen product, there's concern that some customers may still have it in their possession.
