7 November 2013, ABC Rural (Australia) -- "Katy Perry's latest album becomes the subject of a bio-security probe by the Agriculture Department.
The source of the problem are flower seeds from Western Australia that she included in the album's packaging.
Vanessa Findlay, Australia's chief plant protection officer, says when the Department of Agriculture heard Perry's latest album contained a packet of flower seeds, it triggered Australia's biosecurity alarm.
... Dr Findlay says while the Australian-produced CDs are cleared for sale, officers are being instructed to confiscate the seeds from international CDs. ...[T]he seeds were sourced from areas that might introduce pests or diseases. ..."
