Fore! Hash browns recalled over golf ball bits


(CNN) – Some hash browns are being recalled because they may contain pieces of golf balls, the FDA said.

The frozen Southern style hash browns are sold in nine states under Harris Teeter and Roundy’s brands.

The producer, McCain Foods, says some golf ball materials may have been accidentally harvested with the potatoes.

The company says eating the hash browns can lead to choking, but so far, there have been no reports of injuries.

The recall affects two-pound bags sold in Harris Teeter, Marianos, Metro Market and Pick ‘n Save supermarkets.

The Harris Teeter products were distributed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia and Maryland.

The impacted products include: Roundy’s brand, 2 lb. bag of frozen Southern style hash browns (UPC 001115055019) and Harris Teeter brand, 2 lb. bag of frozen Southern style hash browns (UPC 007203649020).

The products being recalled were manufactured on Jan. 19. The production code date is B170119 and can be found on the back of the packaging.

Consumers with concerns or questions about the recall should contact McCain Foods USA, Inc. at 630-857-4533 Monday through Sunday, from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. central time.
