Hash Browns Recalled for Containing Golf Balls

Hash browns recalled after someone harvested golf balls with the potatoes

Bags of frozen hash browns have been recalled by their manufacturer for possibly being contaminated with extraneous golf balls.

Food recalls are not an uncommon thing, and they can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes foods are recalled for potentially being contaminated with bacteria, or mislabeled, or to prevent risk of foodborne illness. This week, a large run of frozen hash browns was recalled for possibly being contaminated with golf balls.

According to CNN, frozen hash browns produced by McCain Foods under the Harris Teeter and Roundy’s brands have been recalled because they might be “contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials.” The company says the golf balls may somehow have been harvested with the potatoes, and then nobody noticed as the golf balls were washed, chopped up, and made into frozen hash browns.

So far nobody has reported any injuries, but McCain Foods said in a statement on the FDA website that the chopped-up golf balls could pose a choking hazard or potentially cause injury to someone’s mouth.

Two-pound bags of Roundy’s frozen hash browns are being recalled in Illinois and Wisconsin, and two-pound bags of Harris Teeter frozen hash browns are being recalled in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, the District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, and Maryland.

Affected bags are marked with a production code of B170119 and should be discarded or returned for a refund.
