Golf Ball Materials Prompt Recall of Frozen Hash Browns

Frozen HashBrowns Recalled by McCainThe U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced over the weekend that McCain Foods USA, Inc. has recalled its “Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns” product because it may contain extraneous golf ball materials. McCain Foods (US) is the American division of McCain Foods Limited, the largest manufacturer of frozen potato foods in the world.

According to McCain Foods USA, the potatoes used in the frozen hash brown products were possibly contaminated with golf ball parts during their harvest. The specific labels being recalled are: 1) Roundy’s Brand, 2 lb. Bag of “Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns” (UPC code #001115055019) and 2) Harris Teeter Brand, 2 lb. Bag of “Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns” (UPC code #007203649020). Products affected by the recall were manufactured on January 19, 2017. Both the Roundy’s Brand and the Harris Teeter Brand products are stamped with a production code date of B170119 on the reverse side of the packaging.

McCain distributed the Roundy’s products to Marianos, Metro Market, and Pick ‘n Save supermarkets in Illinois and Wisconsin. The Harris Teeter branded products were shipped to stores in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

The golf ball fragments in the hash browns may pose a choking hazard to those who consume them. Affected packages should either be properly disposed of or returned to their place of purchase for a full refund.
