Generally speaking, organic seeds should not have poison coating done on them. The "poison" they refer to is called "Thiram", check out this article for more info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thiram.

Thiram is to repel insects and keep the seed from getting attacked by fungal infection. The seeds are safe to use for gardening purpose and the fruits/leaves borne by the seeds are very well safe to consume.
