What you should do
Check to see if you have recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased. However, if you find a foreign metal object in a potato, please do not throw out the potato, metal object or the bag and any tags related to the product. Please contact your local police so the potatoes and related items can be passed along to the investigators.
