Tastes great, but looks like…

28 October 2008 (Harlingen, TX)

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized one and a half pounds of Mexican chorizo at the Hidalgo-Reynosa International Brige on Friday night.

Customs officials said an inspection revealed that a 21-year-old Mission woman hid the pork sausage in baby diapers.

Officers seized the chorizo sausage and fined the woman $300.

Port Director Hector A. Mancha said seizure is a reminder for area residents.

“I would like to remind the public that pork such as chorizo is prohibited from entering the United States,” he said.
