|The deadly Kinder Eggs!|
OK - I couldn't resist this story in today's Star from the AP...
SEATTLE—On a recent visit to Vancouver, two Seattle men picked up some Kinder Eggs to share with family and friends back home.
But they ended up spending more than two hours in a detention centre at the border after U.S. border agents found the “illegal candy” in their car.
It turns out the eggs with the little toy inside are illegal in the United States because young children could choke on the plastic toys.
Importing the eggs can lead to a potentially hefty fine, but Brandon Loo and Christopher Sweeney eventually got off with a warning.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman declined to comment about the case last night.
The agency says it seized more than 60-thousand Kinder Eggs last year.
