LOS ANGELES (AP) - Customs agents have seized nearly 15,000 toasters that popped up at the Los Angeles and Long Beach port complex.

Authorities said Thursday that the toasters seized last month were potentially dangerous because they had counterfeit safety markings.

The toasters arrived in two shipments from China, and Customs and Border Protection officials subsequently received confirmation that the Underwriters Laboratories labels on the products were counterfeit.

Underwriters Laboratories conducts product safety tests.
