Can't the food that's being seized be repurposed and be given to the needy/homeless? Just my honest opinion though.

I remember that my family and I were coming back to the US from Trinidad, we bought fast food and snacks to eat at home (all cooked) and I was worried US Customs would want to confiscate it. I was deadass ready to eat everything in front of those agents

My great uncle, back in the early 90s brought back a fruit from Asia/Philippines called Calamansi from Canada. It was confiscated.
Since then, every time he travels and comes back to the US. He is always inspected.

I once bought a subway sandwich in an airport
Then the dog went sniff sniff
Then the cop went “come with me”
Then me and my mom went “ok”
Then the lady at the place we go to went “u can’t bring that, it carries diseases”
Then me and my mom went on the plane
and then we were at Brazil
That’s where we were going
Edit: we also got to pet the doggo, it was hella cuuute (it was a beagle ❤️ 🥰)

What dangers?!, do you know that if a passenger from Europe carries food with them that is produced in Europe, then that food is firstly more nutritional than US produced such, secondly it’s healthier bc of lesser pesticides n poisons being used in the production. Tell me this... why is it such a danger to import those few foods, when it’s perfectly okay to import huge containers full of it where you actually have LESS control of any ‘dangers’ than in the case with a passenger carrying a few items of food?

It’s not like the food was coming into be given to poor people. It’s destroyed because of the possible dangers. These dangers are unlikely, yes, but any of them could reek havoc in those unlikely scenario.
