Ag & Markets News for Consumers - Statement by NYS Commissioner of Agriculture on unsolicited, mislabeled packages of seeds being sent from China. They have received questions from a few New Yorkers who have received unsolicited packages allegedly sent from China that are marked as containing jewelry but which actually contain plant seeds. Similar packages have been received in other states and the United States Department of Agriculture is investigating.

People who receive seeds should not plant or handle the seeds. They should store them safely in a place children and pets cannot access and email USDA immediately at erich.l.glasgow@usda.gov for instructions.

Seeds imported into the United States are rigorously tested to ensure quality and prevent introduction of invasive species, insects and diseases. We will continue to monitor this issue and will pass along guidance as it is received from USDA.” Consumers e-mailing USDA should include their full names and telephone numbers as well as pictures of the package and any other relevant information.
