AG Officials Warn Against Using Mysterious Chinese Seeds Arriving By Mail

Here’s a follow-up to a story mentioned yesterday on how people in the U.S. say they've been receiving mysterious packages of seeds in the mail, appearing to be from China. 

Residents of Washington, Louisiana, Kansas and Virginia reportedly received the seeds, some of which were mislabeled as jewelry. Packages have also shown up in Utah, Arizona and Ohio.

Chris Bruynis is with the Ohio State University Extension warns residents not to plant the seeds because they could damage plants and livestock. Bruynis also says the Department of Agriculture wants to hear from anyone that has received one of these seed packages.

If you or anyone you know has received one of these seed packages, you can either call the anti-smuggling hotline or the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
