Especially as the flag of Jamaica is green-and-yellow & black with a strong diagonal, and many postal workers are probably from Jamaica (either interpretation), so there's plenty of room for error.

Dear Brian,
    Rumor has it that some of these shipments made it to Jamaica, 
the country, before being routed to the US.

    Newer labels have the USA designation.  I suppose USDA didn't 
realize there was a country with this name.
