The U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced a big seizure on Friday of roughly 1 million pounds of pork smuggled from China, where there’s an ongoing outbreak of deadly African swine fever, reports

Officials announced the seizure of more than 50 shipping containers was in an effort to battle the spread of African swine fever, which has killed more than a million pigs in China.

The million pounds of pork is the largest agricultural seizure in the U.S., said Troy Miller, director of Customs and Border Protection Field Operations in New York/Newark.
