Officials are now warning Americans to be on the look out for ‘mystery seeds’ being sent to citizens across the country from China.
The seeds, which are of unknown origin, are being sent in small packages. Officials are warning Americans that, under now circumstances should they attempt to plant the seeds.
As 13WHAM reports:
Local and state authorities are alerting citizens about recent reports of people receiving unsolicited packages through the mail containing unknown types of seeds.
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says the packages, similar to ones pictured below, appear to be addressed from China and contain unknown types of seeds.
Officials are telling residents to not open the packages if any are received, and to not plant the seeds.
If you do receive a package containing these seeds, authorities say to store the package and its contents safely and notify police.
While the identity of the seeds remain unknown, many are concerned the seeds may be an attempt by the Chinese government to introduce dangerous, invasive species of plants into US soil.
I find it ridicules that these seeds cannot be identified by our labs or in the AG section. There are very few items growing that those in their field cannot identify, I think it should be easy to stop shipments from China if they are arriving in large enough quantities to have been found and why is it taking our labs so long to identify what they are.
NUKE EM!!!!!!!!! Get it over with
Remember the contaminant powder substance that was being delivered via USPS.
Beware a new kind of Trojan Horse. Seeds may seem innocent till eventually some bad seeds may be mixed in with them. including agents sent on them. Report any unsolicited seeds immediately to your agriculture dept. Do not throw them in the garbage. You have seen one pandemic, why invite another.
A normal person under no circurtance should open an unsolicieted package ,especialy from china unless, that particular person is dump and stupid. The chinese are not friends of this nation. Remenber the corona virus.
Alan, because they could be sent to a Liberal Democrat who lacks the IQ to know not to open and give it to the appropriate authorities.
Now why the hell would any reasonably aware individual want to plant or do anything with unknown, unsolicited materials, especially such items coming from abroad in general or China in particular?
