- Roundy's and Harris Teeter brands of Southern Style Hash Browns are being recalled because the company fears golf balls were harvested and processed with the potatoes.

Eating pieces of golf ball could pose a choking hazard or cause physical injury to the mouth.

The impacted products include Roundy’s Brand, 2 lb. bag of frozen Southern Style Hash Browns and Harris Teeter Brand, 2 lb. bag of frozen Southern Style Hash Browns.

The Harris Teeter products were distributed after January 19, 2017 to stores in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Georgia and Maryland. The Roundy’s products were distributed at stores in the states of Illinois and Wisconsin.
