Exotic disease threat in woman's undies

Bananas in pyjamas may be OK, but in undies they are not - as a woman
discovered at Sydney Airport.

Customs officers stopped the 56-year-old from the Czech Republic when
she arrived from Samoa on Wednesday.

Suspecting she was concealing something on her body, a female officer
frisked her and found she was concealing three banana plants in her
underpants.

Quarantine officers seized the plants, which Customs say are a threat to
Australia's banana industry because they can carry black sigatoka The
woman was likely to be issued a court attendance notice when
investigations were completed, a Customs spokesman said.

Penalties for breaching quarantine laws can result in fines of more than
$66,000 or 10 years' jail.
