    Golf Balls in Potato Harvest Prompt Hash Brown Recall
    FDA

    A food company is recalling frozen hash browns from stores in nine states because the potatoes may have pieces of golf balls in them.

    McCain Foods USA's recall notice said the golf balls apparently were "inadvertently harvested'' along with the potatoes and chopped up. They say the pieces could be a choking hazard, but 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.

    [NATL] Man Visits Disneyland 2,000 Times In a Row

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
