Cesium-134/137 measured over 200 percent of safety level from Fukushima rice

“To not be distributed”: unfortunately nothing can stop unscrupulous merchants to distribute it under false labeling of the origin, or to “dilute” its radiation level by mixing it with another rice to lower its radiation level below the safety level, to be sold then on the national market or to be exported to other countries…

According to Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, excessive amount of Cs-134/137 was detected from two unpolished rice samples produced in Fukushima city.
The rice was experimentally produced but not distributed, the farmer states. The highest reading was 220 Bq/Kg in total of Cs-134/137. The safety limit is supposed to be 100 Bq/Kg.
The sample was brought to Fukushima Agricultural Technology Centre this July.
