State agriculture officials are investigating the shipment of plants at nine Lowes stores across western Virginia. Fire ants are known for their aggressive nature and painful stings.

The Staunton store, which held a sale late in the week, sold the majority of its infested stock.

The store is not issuing a recall. If you think you may have an infested plant from the store, you can exchange it.
