The Oregon Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture is advising people that if they receive an unsolicited package of seed from China, don’t open it. Anyone who receives an unsolicited package of seeds from China should immediately contact their state department of agriculture. Save the seeds and the package they came in, including the mailing label, and contact the state ag department for instructions on mailing them. Do not open the seed packets or plant them. If the packets are already opened, place all materials into a zip lock bag and seal it. If the seeds have been planted, leave the seeds/plants in the ground until you receive further instruction after contacting the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The goal is to collect the seeds and test them to determine if they are a concern to agriculture or the environment.
