Mysterious Chinese Seeds Showing Up In Mailboxes Globally
If you've clicked on this story with skepticism, I'm with you. This sounds like some Fake News Tabloid Headline ... but it's unfortunately not. I initially thought the same and had to see if some credible news sources were saying the same thing. Well, when The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, CBS News, Fortune, NBC News, etc, are all reporting the same thing...it's not FAKE.
This sounds pretty serious. Both videos above, News Reports, and the United States Department of Agriculture are urging the following:
- DO NOT OPEN THE BAG OF SEEDS
- DO NOT CONSUME THE SEEDS
- DO NOT PLANT THE SEEDS
- DO NOT THROW THE SEEDS AWAY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES
- REPORT RECEIVING THE SEEDS
The NYS Department of Agriculture, along with the United States Department of Agriculture, are urging New Yorkers to mail the sealed package of seeds in the original packaging, with your contact name and any other information you may have about the seeds, to the USDA at:
