Customs and border controls around the world are cracking down on all kinds of illegally caught food. Recently, for example, a vehicle trying to cross the El Paso border was stopped by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents. Many people are more concerned about drug trafficking along the U.S.-Mexico border, but CBP staff are more concerned about their day-to-day affairs. In this case, a man claimed to be shipping frozen turkey rolls. But CBP found that it was carrying dangerous pork.

If it was legal to freeze the turkey, CBP staff would apparently release the Chevrolet pickup. But just after 9 a.m. that day, CBP found a suspicious lycon in red packaging in the back seat of the truck during the initial inspection.
Despite the client’s quibble, he finally clarified the fact that he was carrying the 154-pound Bologna red intestine. CBP is also fairly severely detained and destroyed for fear of illegal lying into the United States of pork from overseas affected areas.
As for the man, it was reported that he did not face any serious consequences. After the pork products were seized, they were released.
