Wegmans recalls hash browns that may contain golf ball pieces

Fore!

McCain Foods has recalled Wegmans O'Brien Hash Browns because they could possibly contain pieces of golf balls.

The frozen hash browns could contain hard plastic or rubber pieces that could pose a choking hazard or result in a mouth injury.

McCain has received two consumer complaints, but no injuries have been reported.

The affected hash browns came in a 28-ounce bag with the UPC 07789036523, the production code date B161021 and the manufactured date Oct. 21, 2016.

An initial recall last Friday included just Roundy's and Harris Teeter brand hash browns, but it was expanded Wednesday to include Wegmans brand hash browns, which McCain makes for the Rochester-based grocer. No other Wegmans products are affected.

The product should be discarded or returned to the store for a full refund.

But how did the golf ball pieces get into the food? In a statement, McCain said they could have been "inadvertently harvested with potatoes used to make this product." McCain could not immediately be reached for further explanation.
