Usually food recalls involve continuation with E.coli or even the occasional glass shard but golf balls?  McCain Foods USA has issued a recall of frozen hash browns from stores in nine states because the potatoes may have been "contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials." The recall affects 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 with the production code B170119 on the back of the bag. Currently, Harris Teeter operates one store the Sunshine State, Fernandiana Beach. In addition, Roundy's Brand Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns from Marianos, Metro Market, and Pick 'n Save stores in Illinois and Wisconsin. Apparently the golf balls were accidently harvested along with the potatoes.  Fortunately, no one has been injured.
