Long Shadow of Chernobyl (4): Organic Blueberry Spread Imported from Italy Found with 164 Bq/Kg of Cesium-137

Japanese weekly magazine Shukan Asahi did its own checking on imported blueberry spread being sold in Tokyo and alerted the health authorities, who were reluctant to do anything at first.


Main points from from Shukan Asahi (10/23/2013) article:
"Fior di frutta organic fruits spread" blueberry imported from Italy

Place of origin: Bulgaria

164Bq/kg of cesium-137 by test commissioned by Shukan Asahi

140Bq/kg of cesium-137 by test by the municipal (Tokyo) health authorities

Shibuya-ku ordered the importer MIE PROJECT on October 18 to recall 5,184 bottles of blueberry spread with the best before date of October 17, 2015.

Ministry of Health and Welfare initially refused to do anything based on "private" (as opposed to "official" - i.e. by the government) test results.

The public health centers involved didn't want to move either on just "an article that appeared in a magazine".

Less than 10 percent of all imported food is tested; it is possible that people are eating contaminated food without knowing.

I think this is the best time in this generation for people to lose weight, eat as healthy as possible while only eating what amounts are needed to survive. It is safe to assume that all our food is contaminated now, stay away from the obvious high risk foods like mushrooms & fish from the ocean. It would be smart to limit our dairy products too.
