When in Australia…..

I have never been to Australia but its on my “list.” When I go I will make sure to leave my plants and all other agricultural products at home.

The cd cover of Katy’s Perry’s “Prism” is embedded with wildflower seeds. Officials in Australia are worried that the seed paper could introduce invasive species that could wreak havoc on Australia’s delicate ecosystem. The seed paper is considered a bio-safety concern.

The packaging included with the domestic Australian release of Prism is embedded with harmless, non-invasive Swan River daisy seeds. However fans ordering international versions of the album via the Internet or smuggling it back from abroad could potentially have it confiscated by border officials.

Can you imagine the TSA officials at Hartsfield Jackson ripping through your carry-on for a cd cover?
