Global Times on Twitter: "#China has no interest in interfering in ...

U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Office of Field Operations seized more than a half ton of salmonella-laced Kratom at the Fort Street Cargo Facility.

The nearly 1,200 pounds of contaminated powder, valued at approximately $405,000, was initially selected for further inspection when agriculture specialists discovered a number of inconsistencies to include an unusual description on the shipping manifest and classification discrepancies.

The intended imports, which originated from China, were manifested as botanical soils from Canada, though Officers and specialists believed it to be consistent in appearance to bulk green tea. Further steps to positively identify the powder were coordinated by Agriculture and Import specialists through Food and Drug Administration lab tests.

Lab results confirmed the substance to be Kratom, but also revealed it to be contaminated with salmonella, a group of bacteria that can cause gastrointestinal illness and fever called salmonellosis, according to the FDA.

The shipment was ultimately seized due to significant risk to public health and safety.

  • Anyone ever wonder if this Covid was intentionally brought to the U.S. and probably with the consent of the Dems. I did and yhis makes me think so even more. 

    • Agree.  Too many coincidences here.  Dems like Biden and son, Feinstein, Pelosi, Fauci (NIH), Gates (foundation) and others all have ties to China and have gotten a lot of money from the CCP.  Under Obama administration several million dollars provided to Wuhan and Gates apparently has ties and may have provided funds through his foundation to Wuhan.  All the Dems tricks to get Trump out of office failed.  So it is interesting that all of a sudden we have a pandemic involving China and a lot of Democratic players.  Pandemic was apparently planned since Fauci seemed to let the cat out of the bag in 2017, when he said the Trump administration would experience a pandemic.  They stoked fear in the population by lying about the severity (CDC, NIH, and WHO) of the so-called COVID 19, falsely inflating the number of deaths (interesting how we had no flu this past flu season), making us stay home, do social distancing (limit conversations) and wear masks (so we could not build up immunity).  All so the DP could justify voting by mail only, so they could rig the election.  They did it with Bernie (twice) and they do it all the time in the big cities and suburbs.  I think the more difficult argument is, how do you not prove it was intentional!!

    • Agreed, Now that the people are getting tired  of this covid-19 farce, here comes the riots aka protests.  Yeah, the whole far left is in this up to their eyeballs.

    • I'm positive that that is exactly what happened. Nothing else brought Trump down, so they tried their latest evil commie scheme. They never stop.

       

    • The commies aren't succeeding because Trump knows better. He is totally behind getting back to business, which will revive the economy, and he will trounce Biden in the general election. 

    • I didn't say or mean that they were succeeding; I said they never stop. They're evil leftists, you know.

       

    • It would be best if Trump just eliminated them. Only then will the stop trying to toredoe our great President!

  • As I have written in TPCC before, my mother analyzed shipments of shoes from China after Nixon opened the floodgates to China, and found inch thick lead in the platform shoe soles and in other shoes, filthy rags from their landfills. This was right after the opening up, so their goals have been evil from the beginning and continuing. Every single President has let this crap pass and said nothing about it. 

    Customs, btw, is the only federal agency that actually pays its way, at least, that is the way it was then. Don't know about now. Contaminated pet food was another. 

    • red china has ben evil since mao took over and then exterminated 100 million people. It is a communist country !!!!

       

    • And has not changed one bit, bent on death, one way or the other, even their very own are culled out.
