Some of the products may be contaminated with hard plastic.

A Minnesota food maker has issued a recall for almost 100,000 pounds of canned chicken it sells at Sam's Club stores.

Tony Downs Food Company, Inc., based in Madelia, issued two recall notices on Wednesday for its chicken breast in water products.

Sold under Sam's Club's "Member's Mark" name, Tony Downs is recalling 96,384 pounds of the food because it might contain hard plastic.
