Golf Balls Found Inside McCain’s Hash Browns


Someone was obviously using a potato field as their personal driving range.

According to a report at NBC News, McCain Foods of North Carolina is recalling frozen hash browns from stores in nine states because pieces of golf balls were found in the potatoes.

The recall notice said the golf balls were “inadvertently harvested,” meaning some old golf balls were scooped up along with the potatoes by the farming rig.

They say the pieces could be a choking hazard, but no injuries have been reported, according to the Huffington Post.

“Consumption of these products may pose a choking hazard or other physical injury to the mouth,” the company said in a statement.
