New Haven, Indiana (WOWO): The city of New Haven has issued a warning about the prevalence of invading weeds that can pose a real risk of illness.
The plant, known as hemlock, which grows naturally in parts of Europe and North Africa, has a stronger presence in northwestern Ohio and northeastern Indiana, according to ABC21 news partners.
All parts of the plant are toxic: should not be handled or ingested without leaves, stems, seeds, roots, and protective gloves.
The city has issued a warning on its Facebook page about poison hemlocks, warning citizens to be wary of similar plants called wild parsnips and hogweeds that pose additional threats.
