CBP Officers at Dulles Airport Find Bag Full of Dead Birds in Passenger Baggage From China
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at Washington Dulles International Airport seized a bag full of dead birds from the baggage of a passenger arriving from China.
The traveler arrived on January 27 on a flight from Beijing and was destined to stay at an address in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
The package contained a number of unknown dead birds that ranged from 2.5 to 3.5 inches in length.
The product was seized on behalf of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and incinerated under rules meant to prevent the spread of pathogenic avian influenza.
