U.S. Customs and Border Protection Seizes Counterfeit AC/DC Adapters Bearing Counterfeit UL Labels

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers conducting outbound operations at the port of El Paso, Texas recently seized 2,000 AC/DC power adapters in an in-bond shipment from China to Mexico since the Underwriters Laboratories "UL" markings on the adapters were counterfeit.


Officers in Texas seize counterfeit A/C adapters which violate Intellectual Property Rights law.
CBP's intensive examination of the merchandise revealed that the items were labeled "Made in China" and did not bear "UL"-authorized control numbers. Through collaboration with Underwriters Laboratories, it was determined that the labels were counterfeit.
