Chiba Food Testing Shows Ongoing Contamination

Recent food testing results for Chiba Prefecture near Tokyo showed certain foods with detectable radiation.

Foods found with contamination include:
Yuzu (citrus)
Mandarin (assuming they mean the oranges)
Kiwi Fruit

While other foods tested showed no contamination such as cabbage and spinach but those were tested with less frequency. The yuzu fruit seemed to be almost universally contaminated. One of the yuzu had 110 bq/kg of cesium.

Chiba is about 200 miles (320km) from Fukushima
