Hi All,

I have not heard of nor am I aware of the US Customs nor USDA treating incoming shipments from overseas; it is not in their charter which is to inspect incoming goods, verify documentation, and collect duties. Properly treating a shipment and providing the appropriate documentation is the responsibility of the shipper/buyer. If products arrive and are discovered not be as described and/or improperly documented they are confiscated and destroyed and an advisory letter / postcard warning is is mailed to the individual that was to receive the shipment; one GSAS member received a visit from the USDA.
