MIA Customs Officials Keep Us Safe From Teddy Bear Threat
Their eyes were watching eyes. U.S. Customs and Border Protection at Miami International Airport noticed that the glass eyes on a shipment of teddy bears from China were poorly secured, and could be a choking hazard to small children. They sent the bears off for further testing, and indeed they were in violation of the Federal Hazardous Substance Act. The entire shipment of 244 bears were seized.
