Washington, DC - California Qi Li’s Braised Chicken, a Fremont, California, establishment, is recalling approximately 6,644 pounds of duck head and duck neck products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products contain soy sauce which is not declared on the product labels and has known allergens of soy and wheat.

The duck products were produced on various dates between Feb. 11, 2015 and Aug. 13, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 10” x 8” vacuum sealed packages of “Chinese Brand Spicy Duck Heads”
  • 10” x 8” vacuum sealed packages of “Chinese Brand Spicy Duck Necks”

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-40286” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in California.

The problem was discovered when an FSIS inspector reviewed product labels and noticed that soy sauce was not listed as an ingredient. Neither FSIS nor the company has received reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Ling Li, Manager, at (408) 857-0901.
