The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the types of seeds sent unsolicited last month to Louisianans have been identified.

According to a report released over the weekend, the UDSA was able to positively identify 14 different kinds of seeds found in packages addressed from China and sent to addresses in Louisiana and a dozen other states.

Officials say most of the seeds are for flowering plants, including morning glory, hibiscus, and roses, while others appear to be seeds for cabbage, mint, sage, rosemary, and lavender.

The USDA still says not to plant the seeds and they appear to be part of a brushing scam where companies use addresses to post fake reviews.
