Undeclared soy sauce led to a recall of duck necks and duck heads.
WASHINGTON – Fremont, Calif.-based California Qi Li Braised Chicken launched a recall of 6,644 lbs. of duck heads and duck necks after a label review found soy sauce was not listed on the product labels, the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the US Dept. of Agriculture reported.
