People from around the world are receiving mystery seed packages claiming to be from Singapore.

Many people worldwide are receiving unsolicited seed parcels which appears to be sent from either Singapore or China.

Many people worldwide are receiving unsolicited seed parcels which appears to be sent from either Singapore or China.Jan Goward and Java D'Ignazio are a few people who received some mysterious seeds ostensibly from Singapore. These unsolicited seed parcel shipments were reported in the United States, Canada, New Zealand, and Europe, including about a hundred cases in the United Kingdom. The parcel contains a small bag of tiny, reddish-brown seeds.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency(CFIA) is reviewing reports of individuals receiving unsolicited packages of seeds. The agency has urged the citizens not to plant seeds from unknown origins and has warned that the unauthorized seeds could be the seeds of invasive plants, or carry plant pests, which can be harmful.

Similarly, many people across the United States had received suspicious, unsolicited packages of seed that seem to be coming from China. The seeds were sent by mail, which had Chinese writing on the label. The Americans were warned by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) not to open the packages received until the concerned department of their county or city gives further instructions. The bags have sparked biosecurity concerns and international probes into their origins. It is yet to be proved whether China or Singapore sent mysterious seeds to the people around the world.
