NEW YORK -- Federal food inspectors have announced the recall of 1,920 pounds of sweet potato and chicken baby food made by Beech-Nut Nutrition, saying it may be contaminated with small pieces of glass.

The problem was discovered after Beech-Nut received a complaint from a consumer who found a small piece of glass in the product, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday in a statement.

"Outside of this single report, we have no indication that any other jar of our Classics Stage 2 Sweet Potato & Chicken is affected, but as a company of parents and families we are acting with an abundance of caution," Beech-Nut said in a statement.

The 4-oz. glass jars containing "Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato & chicken" were produced on December 12, 2014.

They bear the establishment number "P-68A" inside the USDA mark of inspection, show an expiration date of "DEC 2016" and include product numbers "12395750815" through "12395750821."

Beech-Nut, which is owned by Swiss-based Hero Group, said it was encouraging customers to return the recalled product to the store where they purchased it for a refund or exchange.
