Source? likely to be reintroduced: 

Wild carrot already occurs in many temperate regions of the world. Although cultivated carrot is harvested before it produces seeds, escapes from cultivation do occur, allowing the establishment of wild populations.

Info Blurb: 

A prolific seed producer. Can spread rapidly, invading open grasslands, meadows, roadsides, abandoned fields, waste areas and degraded prairies, competing with and displacing native plants. Can negatively affect commercial carrot cultivation through genetic introgression in seed crops. Probably introduced a seed contaminant in imported grain.
