Kaohsiung Customs Seizes Undeclared Containerized Dried Mushrooms before Dragon Boat Festival
Kaohsiung Customs indicates that as the Dragon Boat Festival is just around the corner, the demand for such food ingredients as dried mushrooms is boosted. It is inferred that unscrupulous vendors have been tempted to smuggle low-priced dried mushrooms from China in order to take advantage of the occasion. The Customs authority reiterates that if agricultural products which have not been quarantined are sold in the market, the health of the general public will be in jeopardy as the products might contain toxins harmful to human health. In order to protect domestic agriculture and to ensure food safety for the people, the Customs authority has taken the initiative to combat the prohibited goods, successfully stamping out the illegal activity.
The public is encouraged to report any suspected smuggling activities to Customs by calling the toll-free number: 0800-711117.
