Some Floridians have reported opening their mailboxes and getting a mysterious package of seeds from China.

None of the 160 and counting residents who have received them knows what the seeds are for, but it has gotten the attention of the Florida Department of Agriculture.

If you receive unsolicited seeds by mail, don't open or plant them.


Nikki Fried, FL Agriculture Commissioner

The creepy packages come with Chinese characters, and some also have the name "China Post" on them.

Florida isn't the only state receiving strange seeds as residents in Virginia, Kansas, Washington, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Utah have reported getting this same weird package.

The Department of Agriculture is strongly advising residents not to open nor plant the seeds as they can be harmful to animals and humans.
