OAKLAND (AP) -- Customs inspectors have intercepted $22 million in counterfeit "designer" goods in a shipping container from China.
An X-ray at the Port of Oakland used to detect radioactive material from terrorists discovered the large haul of counterfeit items earlier this month.
The container included counterfeit Rolex, Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, Bulgari, Cartier, Chanel, Versace, Juicy Couture and other fraudulent brand name merchandise.
The government is assessing civil penalties against those involved. The importer, whom customs officials would not name, has a bond, which will be taken.

It's scary how many different things are smuggled into the country. About a year or two ago, they were smuggling in GFCI receptacles with counterfeit UL labels. They were garbage,and managed to end up on the shelves of many major home improvement stores. There was even a large scale recall.
