Officials in at least 15 states across the country have warned residents not to plant unsolicited packages of seeds delivered through the mail from China.
Mysterious packages of unlabeled seeds coming from China are appearing in mailboxes across the US. The United States Department of Agriculture, the Department of Homeland Security, and other agencies are investigating the packages. They warn to not plant the seeds. Invasive plants will affect local agriculture and the environment. If you receive such a package, keep everything (bag with shipping label, the seeds, anything else in the bag) and contact your local state department of agriculture for assistance.
