Amazon bans foreign seeds sale on packages mystery decided sales of foreign seeds in the United States after thousands of American buyers received unsolicited packages containing seeds postmarked from China.

"Moving forward, we are only permitting the sale of seeds by sellers who are based in the US," the company's statement read.

The Department of Agriculture (USDA) examined the seeds and urged people not to plant them. It found the packages were likely part of a so-called "brushing scam," through which sellers send their merchandise and then write false reviews online to boost their businesses.
