Two women from Mongolia arrived at Dulles International Airport in the D.C., area a couple of weeks back. Their baggage included juice boxes. The juice boxes didn’t have juice — they had horse meat.

“Horse meat is prohibited from entering the United States,” Customs and Border Protection wrote in an announcement today, “if it is not accompanied by an official government horse meat certification from the country or government it originates.”

These Mongolian ladies didn’t accompany their ground horse meat with an official government horsemeat certification. Instead, their ground horse meat was accompanied by 13 pounds of horse genitalia.

“CBP incinerated all food products.”

As of press time, CBP hadn’t answered a query as to whether the genitals are included in the “food products” that were incinerated.
