To their surprise, when they opened the package they found a human brain specimen inside a clear glass mason jar.

Area Port Director Michael Fox said, 'Individuals looking to import shipments such as this, need to remember that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a strict Import Permit Program that must be adhered to.

'This is just another great example of just one of the many things CBP officers do to protect our nation on a daily basis.'

The shipment, which originated from Toronto, Ontario, was destined for Kenosha, Wisconsin.
