The canned chunk chicken breast items were produced on Nov. 28 and Nov. 29, 2017. The recall involves 12.5-ounce cans and 50-ounce cans of Member's Mark chicken breast with the establishment number "P-65" inside the USDA inspection mark. The items were shipped to Sam's Club stores nationwide.

Two consumers found the plastic in cans and returned the product. There are no reports of anyone getting stick from eating the products.

Consumers who bought the products are urged not to eat them but instead discard or return them.
