U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents found 22 pounds of animal parts inside a traveler's luggage at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport last week, according to a news release.
Raw pig, chicken, and cow meat were all found inside a traveler's suitcase arriving from Vietnam on February 4. The traveler was also carrying hearts, tongues, heads and various other body parts .
The meat was discovered when the traveler arrived at D/FW and was referred for a baggage exam.
The woman didn't declare any of the animal parts, according to CBP. She is a permanent resident of the United States.
CBP said those kinds of meats can potentially be carriers of harmful diseases, and they were destroyed.
On a typical day, CBP seizes approximately 4,638 prohibited plant materials and animal products, according to the news release.
