Szechuan peppercorn source

Does anyone know someplace to buy Szechuan peppercorns in OC / LA county? I've tried some Vietnamese markets in Westminster, and the 99 Ranch markets in Irvine don't carry it.

Surfas used to sell them until last year, when the FDA confiscated their supply. Apparently, the Feds deem it an unsafe food, despite their safe use throught history. Thanks for any leads.
