LQNN of California is recalling 213,192 pounds of chicken, beef, and pork products that were produced without inspection. They are also misbranded, since they are stamped with a USDA mark of inspection that was unauthorized. They also have the unapproved use of another facility’s mark of inspection, identified as Establishment number 18995.
