Beware of Unsolicited Packages of Seeds

The Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) is aware that many Georgia residents have received unsolicited packages containing seeds. The packages appear to have originated from China. If someone has received a similar package, he/she is strongly urged not to open the package, not to plant the seeds, and not to discard the seeds.
