Katy Perry CDs Inspected In Australia Over Biosecurity Fears

Biosecurity officers in Australia have been ordered to inspect imported Katy Perry CDs over fears that they may pose a threat to the country's citizens. The deluxe version of her Prism LP contains a small packet of seeds.

Fans are encouraged to "spread the light" by planting the seeds that come with the album.

"Seeds or plant material of international origin may be a weed not present in Australia or the host of a plant pathogen of biosecurity concern," a rep for the Department of Agriculture told news.com.au.

"The Australian Government has a strong system in place to detect and respond to material of biosecurity concern. This includes the inspection of mail, cargo and baggage."

The department stressed that deluxe versions carrying locally sourced seeds are OK, while imported seeds posed a threat.
