People around the country – and here in North Dakota – have received packages of unsolicited foreign seeds.

The seeds appear to have originated in China.

North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said he’s heard from at least 40 people who have received the seeds. And he said it’s various types of seed.

"Some of it looks like noxious weeds," Goehring said. "Some looks like birdseed, grain millet, all kinds of stuff."

Goehring said that is a concern.
