The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is investigating reports of individuals receiving unsolicited packages of seeds. There have also been reports of seeds arriving in the U.S.
 
CFIA says not to plant seeds from unknown origins as they could be the seeds of invasive plants, or carry plant pests, which can be harmful when introduced into Canada.
 
These species can invade agricultural and natural areas, causing serious damage to plant resources.
 
If you receive a seed package that you did not order, contact your regional CFIA office immediately.
 
Keep the seeds and packaging, including the mailing label until a CFIA inspector contacts you with further instructions.
