(WDIV) -- Entenmann's has issued a voluntary recall of its Little Bites fudge brownies, chocolate chip muffins and blueberry muffins.

The recall includes Little Bite five-pack (best-by date Oct. 8, 2016), chocolate chip muffins five-pack and 10-pack (best-by date Oct. 8, 2016), and Variety 20-pack – fudge brownies, chocolate chip muffins and blueberry muffins (best-by date Sept. 24, 2016).

The recall is due to a choking and cutting hazard from small pieces of plastic caused by a manufacturing failure at a contract manufacturer's bakery in Illinois, the company announced.

In each case affected by the recall, the code number "3098" is printed next to the best-by date on the outside of the box.

The recall was announced after consumer reports of plastic in the food.

One injury was reported as a result of the incident.

No other Entenmann's products are affected, according to the company.

Anyone who has bought any recalled product should throw it away or return it for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 1-800-984-0989 at any time.
