Beech-Nut Nutrition has ordered a recall of almost a ton of baby food products that may be contaminated with small pieces of glass, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced.

Four-ounce glass jars containing "Stage 2 Beech-Nut CLASSICS sweet potato and chicken" are subject to the recall, the department's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement.

The recall was initiated after a consumer contacted Beech-Nut and reported finding a small shard of glass in the baby food jar.

The company said it received one report of an oral injury linked to consumption of the affected product, while the FSIS says it has not received any additional reports of injury associated with the products.

About 1,920 pounds of baby food are subject to the recall; affected jars bear the number P-68A inside a USDA inspection mark of inspection, display an expiration date of "DEC 2016," and carry product numbers "12395750815" through "12395750821."

Produced in December 2014, the product was shipped to stores across the U.S.

Consumers wanting more information can contact Beech-Nut by calling 866-674-4446, either for a full refund of for instructions on how to return the product to the store where it was purchased.

The FDA says the Beech-Nut move is a Class I recall, meaning there exists a "reasonable probability" that using the product could result in serious health consequences or death.

It is the most serious class of recall, above Class II, with a "remote possibility," and Class III, "no probability."

Beech-Nut says the single report to it was of a small piece of glass discovered in one jar of the baby food.

"We have no indication that other jars have been affected, but as a company of parents and families we are acting with an abundance of caution," the company said on its Facebook page.
