Katy Perry's new album 'Prism' triggers Oz 'biosecurity alarm'

Melbourne, Nov 4 : Katy Perry CDs purchased overseas are to be inspected by biosecurity officers due to fears that they may pose a risk to Australia.


The deluxe version of the 29-year-old singer's latest album, 'PRISM' contains a small packet of seeds, news.com.au reported.

Even though the production company has assured the Department of Agriculture that the Australian release contains locally sourced seeds, international versions of the album still pose a risk.

According to a department spokesperson, 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.

The Australian Government has a strong system in place to detect and respond to material of biosecurity concern.

If an international version of the CD is discovered, a Department of Agriculture biosecurity officer will inspect the album to assess the level of risk.
