Don't Plant Any Seeds Sent To You From China Police Say

"Do not plant seeds from unknown origins." That's the warning issued by officials in multiple states as people have received mysterious packages of seeds in the mail, from China or other overseas locations. The seeds have been showing up in residents' mailboxes in white or yellow pouches with Chinese lettering. In some cases, the packets have been labeled as jewelry, toys, or earbuds. Police theorize the seeds could be part of an online scam known as "brushing," in which a vendor sends out a cheap product to an unsuspecting recipient, then posts positive reviews for that product under the recipient's name. Another theory is that it's a form of agricultural smuggling. Either way, agriculture officials are asking the public to keep seed packets sealed, put them in a zip-close plastic bag for safe measure, and to report any packets they've received.
