US authorities in Puerto Rico seize, destroy 10,000 counterfeit toy dolls shipped from China

Federal authorities in Puerto Rico say they seized 10,000 counterfeit Barbie dolls that arrived from China.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday that the shipment had a value of more than $41,000. The 12-inch (31-centimeter) dolls came with a tiny toy dog and all have been destroyed.

Officials say they seized nearly 300 shipments in Puerto Rico last year for intellectual property violations.
