The recall comes after three consumers complained they found pieces of “white, semi-rigid plastic” in them, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

There have been no reports of injuries.

These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund.
