Customs officers in the Netherlands have begun seizing food items from drivers coming from Britain.

According to news agency United Press International, the move is among the results of Brexit regulations.

The British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs earlier issued a guidance on the matter.

It suggests the dispoasal of any personal food items before attempting to enter the European Union.

“From 1 January, 2021, you will not be able to bring products of an animal origin into the European Union,” the department said.

Prior to Brexit, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked the Queen to suspend the parliament.

With or without a deal, the U.K. will be out of the European Union by October 31, 2019.

The pronouncement caused a great deal of panic and confusion across the British Isles.

The act of suspending parliament, otherwise known as Proroguing, is considered as a crucial step to speed up the preparations for Brexit.

In doing so, PM Boris Johnson and his transitions team was able to hasten the proposed deal with the European Union.
