You may want to double check those hash browns you just bought. 

A food company is recalling frozen hash browns that were sold in nine states because the potatoes could contain pieces of golf balls, according to the US Food and Drug Administration's website.

McCain Foods USA's recall notice says its frozen hash browns could be "contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials" which may have been "inadvertently harvested" with the potatoes used to make the product.
