Be on Alert For Seed Packages Arriving By Mail

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is warning residents to properly discard and report unordered and mislabeled seeds shipped from overseas.

Citizens across the nation have received seeds in packages labeled as jewelry and other items. The exact origin and nature of these seeds remain unknown and officials have expressed concern that they may contain plant diseases, weeds or invasive plants that could harm Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry and ecosystem.

If you receive unsolicited seeds, the Department of Agriculture recommends keeping them in the package. If the seeds are opened, double bag and seal the seeds. Do not plant or discard the seed.

You can report the package to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) confidential Anti-smuggling Hotline, by phone at 800-877-3835 or email Mail@aphis.usda.gov.
