Illegal Bologna Seized at the Mexico-Texas Border
Now what am I going to eat for Thanksgiving?
According to a news release from U.S. Broder Patrol in El Paso, agents seized 154 pounds of Bologna deemed illegal to transport across the border. Officials say the pork in the bologna can introduce foreign animal diseases in the U.S. pork industry.
As the driver crossed the border, officials noticed the rolls behind his seat which he claimed were rolls of frozen turkey ham. They let the man go, but without his pork. The meat was seized and destroyed.
It's a shame to see that delicious lunch meat go to waste.
Hopefully prices of Bologna won't go up at the grocery store, because I don't get paid for another week.
Border Partol Officials took the opportunity to remind people that they must declare items they are bringing into the U.S. because there are strict guidelines of what you can and cannot bring in.
