A routine border inspection turned into a bunch of bologna on Friday.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, seized thirty-five rolls of contraband lunchmeat from a 33-year-old Ciudad Juarez resident.
The street value of the black-market bologna reportedly stacks up to about $2,700 and 4000 sandwiches worth. This is the largest bologna bust to date.
"This is a prohibited product because it is made from pork and has the potential for introducing foreign animal diseases to the U.S. pork industry," Santa Teresa Port Director Grace Gomez told CNN affiliate KOAT. "...Some foods and agricultural products are prohibited because they can introduce disease and pests to the U.S. agricultural industry."
