More Food Contamination Found In Japan

It isn’t just the new “revelation” that large amounts of Fukushima rice are contaminated, many other foods are showing up contaminated. There appears to be no decline in incidents or the spread. Pollack from Hokkadio that was exported to South Korea has shown up as contaminated.

Shizuoka dried shiitake mushrooms were found to be over the 500 bq/kg limit of cesium. Many others were found contaminated but under the govt limit so they were shipped.

Soybeans in a number of locations were found to be contaminated.
