McCain Foods USA is recalling frozen hash browns from stores in nine states because the potatoes may have been "contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials," reports the AP. The recall notice said the golf balls apparently were "inadvertently harvested with potatoes used to make this product" and chopped up. "Consumption of these products may pose a choking hazard or other physical injury to the mouth," reads the recall, per CNN. No injuries have been reported.

The company is recalling 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. It is also recalling Roundy's Brand Frozen Southern Style Hash Browns from Marianos, Metro Market, and Pick 'n Save stores in Illinois and Wisconsin. The hash browns being recalled have the production code B170119 on the back of the bag. (Read more recall stories.)
