Horse Genitals, Yak Milk Seized from Mongolian Travelers at Dulles Airport

posted by MH - 

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed they recently seized some pretty unusual contraband, even by their standards.

Two women traveling to the U.S. from Mongolia allegedly tried to bring in over 42 pounds of illegal foodstuffs from the Asian country, including horse meat hidden inside of juice containers, 13 pounds of horse genitals, and three liters of yak milk.

The women claimed the meat and milk were for "medicinal purposes."

U.S. Customs prohibits the entry of such things unless it is accompanied by an appropriate government official certification from Mongolia.

It's certainly not unusual for food products originating from foreign countries to enter the U.S., but certain kinds of foods are prohibited.

All of the material seized in this case was later incinerated.
