According to the FSA, McCain Foods has recalled certain batch/lots of McCain Hash Brown Potato products from the UK marketplace due to plastic fragment contamination. The presence of plastic makes this product unsafe to eat. You should neither serve nor consume the recalled Potato products identified above.

In general, if bone, glass, metal, plastic and/or rubber fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Hash Brown products, please do not consume them directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the Potato products to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-9-9, your closest hospital A&E or emergency centre equipped to handle internal lacerations.
