How To Fix Broken Dining Table Leg?

My kitchen table is a 6' country style table that is only 1 year old. In the corners underneath, there are small pieces of wood attached in each corner and the leg is put on from the outside and a long screw goes through the corner piece into the leg, holding it in place.

The screw doesn't go straight into the wood of the leg, it goes into a metal (may be plastic) anchor type holder (it has grooves for the screw on the inside, and the outside part has 'teeth' to hold it into the wood).

When moving the table to get an area rug under it, to my dismay I noticed the table listing to the side! The leg was pulled completely out of the socket, and upon further inspection I saw that the anchors had pulled out of the wood, and now they are stripped and no longer fit. So the table leg does not stay on like it should.

Is there a way to fix this? I thought about filling the hole with super glue, but I will be moving in the summer and would like to be able to take it apart. Any suggestions?
