Let Them Eat Caviar
Posted on Dec 20, 2008
Some needy denizens of Milan will be served a rare delicacy this holiday season, after Italian customs officials seized about 88 pounds of beluga caviar from smugglers trying to sneak it in from Poland. The loot—worth over half a million dollars—was donated to feed the Milanese poor.
Beluga caviar is the most expensive variety of the delicacy.
Countries have tried to crack down on illegal trading of caviar after more than 600 tonnes of it were traded in the EU between 1998 and 2004.
