“Right now, we are uncertain what types of seeds are in the package. Out of caution, we are urging anyone who receives a package that was not ordered by the recipient, to please call the LDAF,” said Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry Mike Strain, D.V.M.

“We need to identify the seeds to ensure they do not pose a risk to Louisiana’s agricultural industry or the environment.”
