(WTNH) — A popular sweet snack food has been recalled due to possible pieces of plastic that can cause a choking hazard.

Bimbo Bakeries USA has recalled several varieties of its Entenmann’s Little Bites cartons due to the presence of small pieces of plastic. The company says this was caused by a manufacturing failure at a contract bakery in Illinois.

The products being recalled have “Best By” dates, UPC codes and were distributed in the states listed below:

  • Entenmann’s Little Bites Fudge Brownies – 5 pack (Net Weight 9.75 oz.) October 8, 2016/3098 7203001342 AL, CT, DE, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, ND, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, TN, VA, VT, WI, WV

Officials say in each case, the code number “3098” is printed next to the Best By date on the outside of the box and the products were delivered to retail stores in the last two weeks.

The company says it received one report of plastic in the product and one injury was reported.

No other Entenmann’s products are affected. If you’ve purchased these products, you should throw them out or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
