MIAMI -

U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized more than $10 million worth of counterfeit goods last week.

On June 8, a shipment from China was targeted for examination after officers found the samples taken during a routine inspection were likely to be trademark violations.

The shipment contained clothing and jewelry marked Louis Vuitton and Burberry.

Representatives from Louis Vuitton and Burberry confirmed the items were counterfeit.

"One of CBP's missions is keeping counterfeit goods from reaching the American public and infiltrating our marketplace," said U.S. Customs and Border Protection Director of Field Operations Vernon T. Foret.
