I got a website recommended from someone here and I was so dumb to not check if 99% SN is illegal in Germany. And yes, it is. So I tried to cancel the order, since I know customs here are brutal, but the website is rejecting my request. I'm afraid police will show up and I have to pay a fine...Does any other German has expierence with it? I ordered just 50g SN. I think "Annahme verweigern" doesn't count if it's an illegal substance.

I don´t live in Germany. But I know a case in Germany. Someone ordered SN from abroad, customs conviscated it and the person got serious problems for import of an illegal substance. If you refuse the parcel, the authorities will still find out that you ordered it and paid for it.
Why don´t you order SN from a source in the EU ?

because every source in EU wants company proof. and german customs even check EU state-packages
And I can't cancel the order. The company is refusing to cancel it

Customs does not check parcels shipped within the EU. And not every supplier of SN requires a company proof.

Damns lets hope nothing happens. I am from Germany too and was about to order some SN from canada
Customs does not check parcels shipped within the EU. And not every supplier of SN requires a company proof.
So lets say i have a source from poland and i want it shipped to Germany i should be fine?

I don't wish more stress in your life for you and this kind of scrutiny to add to your concerns.

This is the correct answer if questioned:


During pandemic you are trying to save money by curing and storing meat.

Please keep us updated. Hope this is of help.

No authority would believe you that you are using SN with a purity of 99% for storing meat. In Europe curing salt contains only 0,6% SN.

@Zerengin96: It´s not a good idea to mention countries. But to answer your question: Yes.

i would email the company and just tell them keep the money just don't ship it. If they don't ship it and it doesn't enter Germany then they can't get you for importing anything.

You can read the details on the website itself. If you were unclear about the specifics you are still researching.

It's up to you.

The words of woke-scolds are nothing but that...woke-scolding of others.

I second the suggestion of cutting your losses, contact IC and tell them to keep the money.

If they still ship the package you may get it through customs with luck. Authorities can only do so much. You didn’t know. It’s the truth and they won’t throw you in jail for this. Most LE just want to make sure you don’t order it again.

And yes. Once the dust has settled going through an EU member country is the best option.

Keep us posted!

Curing salt is 6.25% SN here in Canada, but I ordered - and received - a 2 LB jar of 99% purity SN advertised as a food preservative. I think it depends on the authority (mine had to come through customs), and some measure of luck.

If you ordered from IC, he declares that it's sodium salt. No mention of Nitrite. So unless they open the package,they won't know. In order for them to not get suspicious you could ask the seller to declare a small value for your parcel like i did. Just ask him to declare you payed 6$ or so. If they see on the package you paid 60$ for salt of course they'll get suspicious and open it.

But if they see you imported sodium salt, they'll get suspicious and open it. Who needs to import salt?

There are all sorts of salts out there. Maybe you ordered some salt with other fancy spices in it. People order all sorts of stuff that they can easily find in their countries.

Yeah for the declaring part it's too late. He already shipped it. So I bet they will open it....

Germany customs is nazi. They open packages from EU states. My best friend ordered something harmless from Italy, which wasn't approved in Germany (some med) and they opened it. There are lots of reports where customs also opens packages from Poland. Those are EU members. Germany is just fucking nazi regarding customs

I was called by a courier and he delivered the package at my door so most likely it will be the same for you since you also paid that expensive shipping.
If caught you might have to pay a fine since it's the first occurrence. However in case they show up and question you, just say you got it for some relative in the country side who has meat and isn't very internet savvy to order themselves. Whatever they say don't admit it was for CTB.
You might get lucky and they won't open yours. I doubt they open every single package. Yeah they might open even the ones from EU but most likely they do it selectively.
Another option: see what happens. If there's just a courier showing up,pick the package and after don't keep it where you stay. Store it somewhere else for a month.
In case police comes with the courier or you are invited somewhere to pick the pack and asked questions, you could also deny you ordered. You have no idea about it and didn't order anything like that.Best is to order something else from the internet now(ebay,amazon etc) and if they invite you for questions/show up at your door,just say you expected your order from ebay/amazon/whatever and don't know anything about any Sodium Salt order or IC. Could also print the payment for ebay/amazon/whatever site order just to have it handy. Delete your internet history and e-mail you got from IC.
So,just see how things go and you chose what to do at that time. If you deny and say you didn't order and it is a mistake there is nothing they can do to you. Hope this helps.
P.S: I'm pretty sure i've seen posts of people from Germany who got their N orders just fine. So don't stress too much.

Well, you sure haven't thought this one through if you're here complaining about your own ignorance and impulsively.

You got no one to blame but yourself on this one.

Good luck.

New knowledge?

You've gotten so much support and suggestions here and don't realize how others are trying to help ease YOUR anxiety and you don't even know it. This is news to you.

If you claimed ALL of it was for you then you've fucked yourself because you couldn't logically think (this too is news to you, not to others).

Is it because of anxiety or Ignorance? WTF would claim ALL of it for one's own use?

Do TELL.
So we may all learn from your mistakes. Thank you.

Police shows up latter you say you thought it was your order from ebay/amazon and so you picked it up. When you saw that it wasn't the ebay order, you just threw it at the garbage. If they are to come latter, they wont come after 3 months,they do it after a few days.I told you: pick it and store it somewhere else for a while( 30 days or more), You'll be fine. Don't stress so much.

Honestly, they will not put resources and energy into something so benign as a 50g pouch of SN.
Not even in Germany.
If it gets intercepted you’ll be questioned and you simply hand the package over.
You can also claim that it wasn’t what you ordered and you tossed it. Your call.
Nobody is going to try and figure out IP addresses or payments for this. It’s peanuts.

Just like someone else above said: figure out your story, the one you are comfortable with. Then wait and see what happens. That’s all you can do now.

We all have made stupid mistakes in our lives. We deal with it the best way we can.
This won’t be the end.
Uncomfortable? Yes.
Embarrassing? Possibly.
But you won’t be dragged out in handcuffs and jailed.

thanks. thanks alot. Yes I have to think about what to say if anyone shows up..I'm just in panic mode rn. I just wished for a relative peaceful death, since N is not an option financially for me and customs are probably even harder on this one. Hanging will be the alternative..

The peaceful part comes when you have your ducks lined up. Until that’s the case we all go through that incredible anxiety and the “what if’s”.

So: one thing at a time.
You’ve ordered.
It’s shipped.
Now you wait.
