14 different types of seeds from mysterious parcels received from China have been identified, said Osama El-Lissy, Deputy Director of the US Department of agriculture’s animal and plant health inspection service. An audio recording of his statement is available on the Department’s website.
“We identified 14 different types of seeds, including mustard, cabbage, bindweed and some herbs like mint, sage, rosemary, lavender, as well as other seeds, including hibiscus and rose,” El-Lissy said.
Free News previously reported mysterious packages from China to Japan from anonymous senders. They were received by residents in different parts of the country. The packages were not stamped by the quarantine service, and each contained plant seeds.
Similar cases were recorded in Australia and 20 US states.
