Science always seems to be coming out with the next new superfood that will change your life. Unfortunately, golf balls are not one of them. On Friday, McCain Foods USA recalled two brands of frozen hashbrowns which they say may contain pieces of golf balls in them.
The New York Post has the bizarre report:
McCain Foods USA’s recall notice said the golf balls apparently were “inadvertently harvested” along with the potatoes and chopped up. They say the pieces could be a choking hazard, but no injuries have been reported.
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.
McCain Foods say Harris Teeter’s 2 lb bag of Hash Browns may have been harvested inadvertently with “extraneous golf ball materials.”

It is also recalling Roundy’s Brand Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns from Marianos, Metro Market, and Pick ‘n Save stores in Illinois and Wisconsin.
The hash browns being recalled have the production code B170119 on the back of the bag.
