Customs and Border Protection experienced a massive uptick – nearly 100 percent – of meat contraband imported to the U.S. from China.

“In calendar year 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of shipments containing prohibited pork, chicken, beef and duck products arriving from China intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agriculture specialists in Los Angeles, nearly doubled compared with the previous year,” CBP notes.

In Los Angeles alone, from January 1st to December 31st 2020, CBP issued 1,049 Emergency Action Notifications (EAN) compared to 527 in 2019, constituting a 99 percent increase. EANs are used in response to meat contraband attempting to breach the U.S. and require either destruction or re-exportation.
