Virginia residents e-mailed the unknown seeds

The government of the U.S. state of Virginia has recommended to local residents not to plant received by mail seeds of unknown type, which presumably came from China and can be the seeds of invasive plant species.

As reported in a press release on the website of the Department of agriculture of the state (VDACS), the office has received reports that "several residents of Virginia received an unsolicited parcel of seeds, which seem to originate from China".

All who were sent seeds, please contact local authorities.

Previously "mysterious packages" from China was mailed to residents of Utah, as reported this week by local TV station FOX 13. The TV station reported that a resident of the city of Tooele has received two small seed packet, on which were inscriptions in Chinese. Later, the woman found that the same parcel received at least 40 people in the state.
