unacceptable level of radiation.

I have just bought a near 70 year old early Rallymaster from the United States through Ebay.
U.S, Customs have returned to the seller who has replied to me, saying

on the box is a stick-on label that reads "your item was reviewed in our processing center and was
determined to be ineligible to be shipped forward by air to the buyer because of an unacceptable level
of radiation". Really?, it's a watch. That's just nuts. I have a meter that would detect radiation, there was none.

Has anyone come across this idiocy before?
