Amazon BANS foreign sales of seeds in US following ‘mysterious’ deliveries from China
Amazon has banned foreign sales of seeds in the United States after thousands of Americans received unsolicited packages of seeds in the mail, mostly marked from China, raising security concerns amid authorities.
Amazon’s new policy went into effect September 3, The Wall Street Journal reported.
“Moving forward, we are only permitting the sale of seeds by sellers who are based in the US,” the e-commerce giant said in a statement Saturday.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating the mysterious seed packages along with online retailers.
