Australia Rules Katy Perry’s New CD Is a Biohazard

Katy Perry may be trying to help the environment with her new album ‘Prism’ but Australia’s Department of Agriculture (DA) believes that the album could be harmful to the environment.

Daily Mail reports that the deluxe version[1] of the Katy Perry album contains a small bag of flower seeds for people to grow which the DA has declared to be a potential biohazard in Australia. The agency said that the seeds could pose a threat to the wildlife because they could be the host to a plan pathogen of biosecurity concern.

Perry’s production company responded to the warning by saying that the Australian release of the album only contains local seeds which do not pose a threat to the ecosystem. Nevertheless, the DA is still worried about the origin of the seeds in international versions and it will be on high alert for foreign albums coming through customs.
