They may have had better luck on Santas sleigh, but more than 35,000 holiday-themed rubber ducks from China were detained by U.S. Customs officials at the Port of Los Angeles.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized the ducks -- dressed as snowmen, gingerbread men, penguins and reindeer -- which were valued at $18,522, after determining they contained the chemical phthalate in excess of the limit which may be harmful to children.

At least they were harmful to children...but
DHS can stop rubber ducks from coming into the country but not illegal aliens, drugs or terrorists.... gotta love this administration and their ineptitude!

Containers of rubber ducks are usually not smuggled over the border in the dead of night through inhospitable desert terrain.

Hey, give em a break. It’s not as easy as molesting children and the elderly at the airport.

singing, “Rubber ducky, I love you”.
I’m thinking of Sandra Fluke. Why don’t we send these rubber ducks to Fluke. She could change their shape and know what to do with them. Would save her $3,000 in birth control pills and contraceptives.
She could start a birth control business named “Fluke’s Ducks” or “Fluking Ducks”.
Most appropriate for a bird brain.

How many ducks does a child have to eat before there are any ill effects from the phtalate?

I did a double-take when I saw that picture. At first I thought there was some toxic rubber dog doo in it.
