The seizure was in an effort to battle the spread of African swine fever, a contagious, deadly virus which has killed more than a million pigs in China.

The disease has never been reported in the United States, and does not affect humans, but spreads rapidly to domestic pigs and wild boars.

If African swine fever infected American livestock, it could cause $10 billion in damage to the pork industry in just one year, Miller said.

That is a lot of pork! The illegal pork that was seized filled up three rooms. The pork was smuggled in everything from ramen noodles to tide.

This was a highly orchestrated plot to conceal the pork according to the Customs and Border Patrol’s acting port director for the Port of New York/Newark.

This seems strange and almost funny if it wasn't for the fact it could wipe out the pork industry in the US. Was this done to damage the pork industry or just to sell banned goods?

Was that a hamfisted attempt at humour?

Being honest I found it rather boaring
