The Pittsburgh-based Giant Eagle supermarket chain has recalled frozen hash browns because bacteria was found in other products processed at the same independent plant that makes the hash browns.
Giant Eagle officials aren’t saying where that plant is or what other kinds of products had the bacteria. No illnesses have been reported.
The voluntary recall effects Giant Eagle brand country style, western style, southern, diced, and shredded hash browns and Food Club hash browns.
Giant Eagle says the potential health risks are virtually eliminated by cooking the potatoes as directed, but urged customers to throw them away or return them for refunds.
Giant Eagle operates more than 200 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia.
