Golf ball hash? Hash browns recalled because it has golf ball pieces in it


Would you like some golf-ball hash?

A North Carolina food maker is recalling a batch of its frozen hash browns because they've found golf ball pieces in them. McCain Foods said in their recall notice that the golf balls and potatoes for the hash browns were apparently "inadvertently harvested" and were chopped up together to make the hash browns.

It would seem like this means that the potato patch was next to a golf course, or the farmer forgot about the shag bag of balls he hit into the potatoes before he harvested them for McCain.

Fortunately, no one has been hurt by eating crushed-up golf balls with their hash browns.

If, for some reason, you think this might affect you, the company is recalling 2-pound bags of Harris Teeter Brand Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia and Maryland. The company is also recalling Roundy's Brand Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns from Marianos, Metro Market and Pick `n Save stores in Illinois and Wisconsin.
