Frozen hash browns sold at Harris Teeter stores in DC, Maryland, and Virginia have been recalled because they may contain golf ball particles.
From the FDA website:
McCain Foods USA, Inc. announced today it is voluntarily recalling retail, frozen hash brown products that may be contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials, that despite our stringent supply standards may have been inadvertently harvested with potatoes used to make this product. Consumption of these products may pose a choking hazard or other physical injury to the mouth.
The impacted products include the following: 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 Roundy’s products were distributed at Marianos, Metro Market, and Pick ‘n Save supermarkets in the states of Illinois and Wisconsin. The Harris Teeter products were distributed in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia and Maryland. Distribution occurred after the date of January 19, 2017. No other products under the respective brands are impacted by this recall.
That’s one of the craziest recall stories I’ve ever heard… Golf ball particles? There must be a golf course near the potato farm I guess?
Side note: The hash browns in that photo were home made by me. I love cutting up red potatoes and frying them in olive oil to go with eggs on Sunday morning!
