Bimbo Bakeries -- which makes the packaged Entenmann's Little Bites snacks -- just issued a mini muffin recall.

The company said Wednesday that it's recalling nearly 500,000 boxes of Little Bites fudge brownies, chocolate chip muffins and variety packs that may contain "small pieces of plastic."

The recall notice warned of a "choking and/or cutting hazard."

It affects brownies and chocolate chip muffin packages with a "best by" date of October 8, and variety packs with a "best by" date of September 24. All of the affected products were shipped to retailers in at least 30 states within the past two weeks.

Bimbo Bakeries says it received complaints from consumers who found plastic in the product, and an injury was reported. Bimbo Bakeries said it determined the problem stems from a "manufacturing failure at a contract manufacturer's bakery in Illinois."
