MIAMI (AP) - Federal officials say hundreds of counterfeit hoverboards have been seized in Miami
The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1Pd2Z4v) that U.S. Customs and Border Protection says about 300 boards were seized Thursday at the Port of Miami.
Officials say the total estimated retail price of the counterfeit self-balancing boards is $94,000. Officials say they arrived from China and contained batteries with a fake LG trademark logo.
Customs and Border Protection Port Director Dylan DeFrancisci says the seizure of the fake two-wheeled motorized scooters helps ensure that a product has genuine parts and is safe for use.
