Police in the southern city of Can Tho on Wednesday found sweetened apples in a shipment smuggled from China included plastic seeds.

The police said the shipment of green and yellow apples contained plastic seeds.

No conclusions were available about the contents of the apples' flesh.

They also found cartons of raisins, dried apples and mushrooms, soft drinks, and sugar that did not indicate their origins.

The shipment was seized two days earlier from a local company owned by Nguyen Thanh Tam, 32.

Police are tracking down the specific origins of the products and testing the ingredients in order to impose proper punishments.

Dried and sweetened fruits are a popular snack during Vietnam's Lunar New Year's festivities.
