You into golf ball flavored hash browns or nah? Recall Notice

Harris Teeter Hash Browns voluntarily recalled because they may contain golf ball materials

Im not trying to be a party pooper or anything like that, but you might want to remove those Southern Style Hash Browns from your breakfast menu for a little while if you get them from Roundy’s or Harris Teeter.  Earlier this week McCain Foods USA, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of the frozen hash brown products because they “may be contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials.”


If you are anything like me you are REALLY confused at this point. I had soooooo many questions. Apparently those golf ball materials “may have been inadvertently harvested with potatoes used” to make the frozen southern style hash browns. They go on to say that this might be a choking hazard. YOU THINK????

Im going to go ahead and confess that I didn’t know golf balls were harvested in the first place.  Where have I been? Is there a special soil you use to make sure your golf balls turn out right? Unfortunately this is a real story, you can read the actual release on the FDA site here and see for yourself.

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.

Its hard out here for a consumer.
