Default Newark Airport Customs seizes nearly nine pounds of mystery African ‘bushmeat’ from Ghana


Newark Airport Customs seizes nearly nine pounds of mystery ‘bushmeat’

U. S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agriculture specialists at Newark Liberty International Airport seized nearly 9 lbs. of meat from a passenger arriving on a flight from Ghana

Close to nine pounds of mystery “bushmeat” was seized from a passenger traveling from Ghana by customs officers at Newark Liberty International Airport, officials announced Tuesday.

The passenger, who is a US citizen , declared the meat to a Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialist Sunday, but staff from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention realized the brown parts were from wild animals and ordered it destroyed, CBP said.

“CBP Agriculture Specialists made critical interceptions of these prohibited animal products and stopped them from entering the United States before they could potentially cause grave damage to our agricultural and economic vitality,” Troy Miller, director of field operations at CBP’s New York field office, said in a statement.

Bushmeat, a catchall phrase for meat coming from wild animals, is typically derived from non-human primates, bats, civets or African rodents and can spread disease, CBP said.

The agency said animal disease outbreaks, which caused the COVID-19 pandemic, can “adversely affect public health, cause global trade halts and destabilize the economy and our nation’s food supply.”

It was not immediately clear what animal the meat came from. The passenger didn’t face any repercussions because he declared the meat.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
