A woman was recently fined US$500 (S$658) by USA customs after she took a free snack with her as she disembarked a Delta Air Lines flight from Paris, according to a report from a local media outlet in Colorado.

Ms Tadlock said she told the Customs agent that she had just received the apple as a snack from Delta and asked if she could throw it out or eat it. Flight attendants handed out apples, and she saved hers for a snack later on the next leg of her trip.

"I wasn't hungry at the time, so I jammed it in my carry-on", said Tadlock.

The officer was said to have denied Tadlock the option of eating or throwing out the apple. However, the fine isn't for anything she brought back from her trip overseas.

This didn't seem to matter to Customs, who unfortunately chose her for a random search upon entrance.

Tadlock is planning to challenge the fine in court.

Tadlock is frustrated, saying the mistake could cost her $500 and her Global Entry Status. Tadlock told Fox 31 that she asked the agent if she could eat it quickly or throw it away since she didn't mean to bring in an undeclared item.

But on landing, she was pulled up by a Customs official.

"I understand the laws and the department of agriculture doesn't want certain insects in the US", said Tadlock. She feels Delta should not have passed the apples out to customers or should have at least reminded passengers to not take the fruit off of the plane.

When Tadlock went through U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, the fruit was discovered still in its wrapping.

In her interview with Fox, Tadlock explained that she feels that she's being treated as if she were a criminal.

Tadlock chose to fight the fine in court and will bring the case before a judge.
