After reports of people receiving unsolicited seeds from China, some are now receiving masks.
One woman in Adair County she was got a package in the mail Tuesday with Chinese postage. After opening it, she found masks inside that she never ordered, and the package said it was a scarf.
The packaging and postage are similar to what the seeds were in.
The woman made a post on Facebook about her mysterious shipment, and another woman commented on a picture of masks she received from China as well.
Adair County officials have acknowledged several similar reports in their area. The sheriff is suggesting to handle them as little as possible and throw them away. Officials even recommend putting them back in the package they came in, double bag them and throw them away.
The USDA investigating the foreign seeds believe it is part of a marketing scam.
