What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I am delighted by the wonderful pictures. My neighbor here in the campground found the attached caterpillar in a box of garlic sent from B.C. Canada. She does not know if it crawled into the box after it was opened in her tent or it it is a stowaway from Canada. It stung her and though concerned did not want to destroy it. Can you help us identify it?
Thanks

Hi Gery,
Luckily, the sting of the Io Moth Caterpillar only results in mild discomfort.
