So the airport authorities lack scanners, that they use an iron rod to poke into buckets of shea butter meant to be shipped to the UK?
.
Is this how to check for contraband?
.
Where are our food safety standards? People cook with shea butter please!!
.
Are our airports that ill-equipped?

There no scanner that detect drugs mixed in organic matter like she's butter !!!! The only was is an intrusive reagent dip which will change color when in comes in contact with any narcotic .. this is the standard procedure in any airport anywhere

It’s not a machine per say but a chemical.

It’s pink, if there’s drugs like cocaine in any organic matter, the chemical turns blue on contact

Taking a small sample is standard procedure and that’s how it’s done abroad.

Poking a long iron rod that can contaminate stuff inside is just stupid and not done anywhere else

I never said it's a machine , that rod is a dip covered with a reactant that turns blue in the presence of Narcotics , if you take that bucket to Heathrow airport they will do the same thing , the other option is sniffer dogs and I don't think you want dogs to sniff your butter

If they’re concerned something is hidden underneath, they carefully empty the contents and take various samples.

They don’t just go sticking rods inside what someone will consume

Dipping a whole rod coated with chemicals inside like that?

What if it tests negative for drugs and the stuff is meant to be consumed, is that how the thing will get condemned?

Even if they use sniffer dogs, they will still have to run a test to confirm
