"I spent 1,200 yuan ($180) on two boxes of mooncakes with egg yolk filling from Hong Kong, but they were detained by customs."

So said a Beijing resident surnamed Li, adding that the mooncake seller in Hong Kong would not take responsibility for their being detained and did not refund him. With Mid-Autumn Festival fast approaching, many of the people who purchased mooncakes from Hong Kong, Macao and Vietnam are having difficulties getting them through customs. The Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau released a notice, reminding residents not to buy mooncakes with egg yolk, meat or nut fillings, because they could spread diseases such as bird flu and foot-and-mouth disease.
