Unsolicited Seeds Warning

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) — If you’ve gotten seeds in the mail that appear to be from China and that you didn’t order, departments of agriculture across the country advise you not to plant them. 

The Kansas Department of Agriculture said that several Kansas residents have received such packages. They may be labeled as jewelry or have Chinese writing on them. 

“Unsolicited packages of seeds have been received by people in several other states across the United States over the last several days,” the KDA said. 

One Wichita resident apparently received an unsolicited package of seeds, and the package said it contained a “wire connector.”

The types of seeds are unknown, and the KDA is asking that people not plant them. They could be invasive species, introduce diseases to other plants here, or harm livestock, according to the KDA.

Invasive species can “wreak havoc” on the environment, displace or kill native plants and insects, or severely damage crops.

Biological warfare from China?
