Quarantine officers recently intercepted 150 kilograms of Hami melons at the airport carried by a passenger, the largest personal luggage intercepted at the airport on an individual passenger. The melons were carried by a Chinese passenger who had departed from Japan. They had been placed in five cartons, each containing 30 kilograms. Two cartons had put in boxes made of coniferous wood where pest might hide. The passenger claims that the melons were for self consumption only.

Quarantine officers stressed that passengers departing from overseas (including Hong Kong and Macao) are prohibited from bringing non-quarantined biological products, such as fresh fruit, wood, raw bird’s nest and seahorse, into mainland China. These products may look harmless but may contain harmful organisms and pathogenic bacteria that may threaten the destination country's ecological balance, economic safety, and even human health.

    男子出国归来携150公斤哈密瓜过境 因违规被销毁

    一位旅客出国回来,携带150公斤的哈密瓜,创下广州白云机场历年来最大重量的个人携带物。14日,笔者从广东省检验检疫局获得上述消息。

  据介绍,此批携带物为中国籍旅客从日本携带入境,共5纸箱,每箱30公斤,其中2箱哈密瓜更使用藏匿林业害虫的针叶木材质木盒独立包装。据该旅客自述,其所携哈密瓜为个人食用,并无其他用途。

  根据我国相关规定,新鲜水果为出入境人员禁止携带、邮寄入境物品。而针叶木因容易潜藏“森林杀手”—松材线虫,是我国植物检疫工作的重中之重。检疫检疫人员依法对该批物品作截留销毁处理。
