Attack of the killer eggs

Apparently the latest threat to US security is Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs. A lady from Winnipeg bringing some over the border found out she was “smuggling contraband” She was nearly fined $300, but let off with a warning. Now she has received a 7 page letter advising her of the seizure and that she can challenge it. It would be interesting to see how far the US government would go to defend their seizure of a $2 chocolate egg that is apparently is a major threat to children who might choke on the toy. Based on this logic, bringing a portable swimming pool across the border must be a Capital offence.
