Over $1 Billion in Counterfeit Goods Seized

US Customs & Border Patrol (CBP) in the port of Los Angeles / Long Beach noted that they have already seized over $1 billion USD of counterfeit goods in 2022 in this port. The counterfeiting of many types of products has increased and CBP is closely monitoring and targeting shipments that raise suspicion.

Importers are urged to properly vet their suppliers and to understand the trademarks that may impact products they import. When in doubt check carefully before you import as counterfeit goods will be seized by CBP and not only do importers lose their goods they can also face significant civil and criminal penalties.
