9-11: how to protect the country .. from dangerous foods? America won't stand for fruits and vegetables. I notice there weren't any twinkies being confiscated. --- I weep for the future.

People need to stop being dumb..stop bringing stuff to this country that are potentially a risk to our society..its common sense..use it we are adults and be smarter on what you bring..also be honest and let the professionals check it to see if its a risk

It's sad to see so much food get wasted when so many are dying due to hunger even though they mean it for security

Yes because on 911 the terrorists use avocados and plantains to plant the bombs.. nice job fats why dont you try eating some of those fresh fruits and vegetables yourself. You call your self a expert. That's a joke right.

couldnt we be using the confiscated food to help end hunger in other parts of the world? i know that other countries might take the same precausions but it makes me so sad knowing that thousands of people starve and we have food to throw away.
Chris Beacham
Since all of this food is of unknown provenance and potentially pest infested, importing it to a different country could infest that country's agriculture with pests. It has to be destroyed

The truth, entertaining food from different (Food) does no harm (but) the corporate interest , we get enough poisoning from Mosato . This is disgusting Bla Bla she says with they told her to say and with a smile The tourist eat those food in the country and come back fine . Its the corporations big one who pay off to not allow entering not only food but other stuff as well. They are the ones who want to ripe off the Americans not the outsiders , only if they bring in the stuff for their profit.

This is BS! Those agents will definitely be eating your chocolate bars and drinking your whisky!

And eating your steak and snortin your cocaine !!!
What an example this comment section is of how provincial and ignorant Americans are about travel. The only countries in the world that don't take protective steps with food are those that have nothing to lose. The ignorant seem to think that America is alone in protecting its crops and its people.

"Illegal items" then they import the same product at the market. More like protecting the interest of the market.

It would be so much better to donate the food instead of throwing it all to waste. Some people don't even have the privileges of affording fresh fruit and vegetables

What? There was a Question as to How to Protect US from dangerous foods? Yet WE get GMO’s? They didn’t seek true answers I see. They Thought foreigners brought it too us.

TSA is the biggest fraud. The organization was created from a false flag attack on American people which no one went to jail for. An attack that killed thousands of Americans and soldiers.
