Seeds

Mystery seeds from China are appearing in the mail across the United States, but what does this mean for your personal information?

The seeds have made it out West to Idaho, Nevada, and Utah and recipients are strongly encouraged not to plant them.

According to the Pocatello Police Department they have not received any local calls about from citizens who may have received them.

The big thing here according to the Better Business Bureau is that someone in China has your address and may have some of your other information as well.

Jeremy Johnson, Marketplace Manager, BBB said, "Because your information is somewhere out there, you may want to look at your credit cards, your bank accounts, your credit reports to make sure that information hasn't been compromised just because somehow this information your home address has been acquired."

If you receive the seeds, you should save them with the packaging and mailing label in a plastic bag and call the Idaho Department of Agriculture.
