Like your hash browns with a side of golf balls?

“Despite our stringent supply standards [golf balls] 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 company notes in the recall notice.

The recalled products include:

  • Roundy’s brand two-pound bags of “Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns” with the UPC number 001115055019
  • Harris Teeter brand two-pound bags of “Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns” with the  UPC number 007203649020

Look for a production code date of B170119 on the package.

It goes without saying, but if you have any of these products in your freezer, do not eat them! Return them to the store for a refund or throw them away.

Thankfully, no injuries have been reported stemming from this bizarre recall.

Marianos, Metro Market, and Pick ‘n Save supermarkets in Illinois and Wisconsin carried the Roundy’s product.

The Harris Teeter product, meanwhile, was more widely distributed in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia and Maryland.
