United States Postal Service Blip

For those collectors in the U.S.A. who ship overseas - help! I've come across my first International shipping problem. Heretofore, my stuff always got where it should be within the expected time. However, I have learned that an item I sent out nearly four weeks ago did not reach its destination. Here is the message I received when I checked the label/receipt number:

Service(s): International Letter

Status: Processed through Sort Facility

Your item was processed through and left our PHILADELPHIA, PA ##### facility on May 26, 2011 at 11:42 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination. No further information is available for this item.

Shouldn't there be some other message that the item left the country?

I will go to a Post Office tomorrow to ask about this finding, but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of result. If it helps, the destination was Germany.

Thanks for any feedback. I'll write a follow-up with the information I get from a postal worker tomorrow.
