  1. Is this news relevant for normal travelers and their luggage, or does it only concern commercial imports? I believe that there are lots of foods that your local Italian deli can get through their importer/distributor that you wouldn't have the right to bring into the country yourself.

    1. Sorry to report, that this only holds true for big importers for the moment. That salami in your suitcase is still contraband.
