More than 54,000 pounds of frozen chicken bite products made by California-based Overhill Farms, Inc., are being recalled after bones were found inside of them, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday.

The items were shipped nationwide, and the problem was discovered after consumers complained of bones found in the product.

The recall involves 3-ounce, “yummy spoonful” boxes intended for toddlers and 30-pound bulk cases of chicken bites – each in the broccoli, carrot and sweet potato varieties. The full list can be found here.

There have been no confirmed reports of illness or injury, but it is Class I recall with a high health risk. Consumers are urged to return or throw away the products.
