Commissioner Miller says, "The worst-case scenario is that you open up these bags of seeds and you have just infected yourself with a new virus from China. We don't know what's in that bag."

He says the unknown content could be dangerous to livestock and crops. Miller says don't open the package. Instead, report unsolicited seed packages to SITC.Mail@aphis.usda.gov.
