The Washington State Department of Agriculture made a post on Facebook. The seeds are coming in packages that are marked as if they are packages of jewelry.

Unsolicited seeds could be invasive, introduce diseases to local plants, or be harmful to livestock

Reading through the comments on that Facebook post you can see where the same thing has happened to others. Not all of the seeds are the same type, but they are all from China and were not ordered by the receiver.

So, if you get a package in the mail that contains seeds (especially from another country, here is what you do:

  1. Do not plant them! Just like the Washington State Department of Agriculture said in their post, these seeds could be invasive and cause harm or disease. Don’t open the sealed package.
  2. They say that this is called agricultural smuggling and it needs to be reported the USDA. Keep the packaging and seeds in case they need it as evidence. Click here to report agricultural smuggling.

Have you received any seeds like this in the mail? Has anyone you known posted about it? It’s kind of creepy right?
