Receiving unsolicited packages
The Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) is aware of the unsolicited packages of seeds originating from China. At this time, recent reports indicate that unsolicited packages of seeds have been received by people in Utah, Virginia, Washington and the United Kingdom. LDAF requests that anyone who receives a package that was not ordered by the recipient, to please call the LDAF at 225-925-4733 to properly dispose of the seeds. Go to https://www.ldaf.state.la.us/ for more information.
Many open source articles have reported on the unsolicited packages containing seeds that appear to have originated from China. The packages were sent by mail and may have Chinese writing on them. If you have received any of these please store the seeds safely inside a zip top bag and do not plant the seeds.
