Seeds, soil from China prompt warningBy Lin Chia-nan / Staff reporterNine cases of unsolicited packages containing seeds or soil from China have been reported, the Council of Agriculture (COA) said yesterday. Council of Agriculture Minister Chen Chi-chung briefs reporters in Taipei yesterday about packets of seeds or soil sent from China. The two Facebook orders were made by people who ordered seeds and expected them to be locally sourced, but received seeds from China, Chen said. The other three packages contained fertilizer or soil, including two attached with ordered products and one sent by itself, he said. A Council of Agriculture spokeswoman in Taipei yesterday shows photographs of packets of seeds and soil that were forwarded to the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine.
