New York border patrol seizes $28K in unsafe toys

U. S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Champlain Port of Entry seized a shipment of toys valued at approximately $28,747 for violation of the Consumer Product Safety Act.

A commercial shipment of toys that arrived from Canada were held for examination and turned over to agents from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). After testing a sample of the toys, CPSC determined that the Elf Hatching Eggs were in violation due to the absence of required tracking label information. Additionally, the toys were not accompanied by a General Certificate of Conformity, as required by the Consumers Product Safety Act.

 “The men and women of CBP are responsible for enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws and regulations. In this case, we worked closely with CPSC to enforce the laws relating to the safety of international goods and to keep potentially harmful toys out of the hands of children,” said Champlain Area Port Director Steven Bronson.

As a result of these violations, more than 3,500 toys were seized by CBP.
