HARRISBURG – PA Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding is warning consumers to properly discard and report unordered and mislabeled seeds shipped from overseas. Consumers nationwide have received seeds in packages labeled as jewelry. The seeds may contain plant diseases, weeds or invasive plants that could harm PA’s agriculture industry and ecosystem. Redding says seeds sold in the state are tested to ensure that they are genetically pure and regulated to ensure that what’s on the label is what’s in the package. Planting seeds without knowing what they are can wreak havoc with our environment. Consumers who receive unsolicited seeds are asked to retain them and the packaging. If opened, double bag and seal the seeds. Do not plant them or discard loose seeds. Report the package to the USDA at 1-800-877-3835 or email SITC.Mail@aphis.usda.gov.
