Tony Downs Food said affected cans of chicken breast were made Nov. 28-29. They were sold at Sam’s Club locations nationwide and online.

The issue was discovered on March 27 after two customers complained about foreign material found inside the cans.

Customers who purchased any of the recalled packages should throw them out or return them to the store, the USDA said.
