They "may" have products that "may" be
in violation of the regulations of another country
...but no one knows

A small army of Feds including the ever-useful Department of Homeland Security raided a flooring company.


They "may" be selling wood products that "may" be in violation of another country's regulation...

But no one knows because no country has complained.

Is the government trying to demonstrate how useless it is?

Apparently if you deal in wood products in the US since 2008, if a government bureaucrat suspects you might be dealing in wood exported to the US in violation of another countries laws - even if that country has taken no legal action - the Feds will come in and disrupt you business.
