8th February 2017 – Japan Radiation Embargoed Food List
These embargoed food lists give an idea of what food products were found to be contaminated on a frequent enough basis to warrant banning them from sale. This list also doesn’t assure other food items (or food from other prefectures) to not be contaminated. In order to confirm that, regular and frequent testing would be needed. The embargo list does follow what other reporting has confirmed to be problematic foods.
Food restrictions are listed in two levels. One is where the item is completely restricted from sale, the other where it must pass the government management program before it can be sold. The government management program allows the item to have up to 100 bq/kg of cesium before they will prevent it from being sold. The management programs are imperfect. Spot checks won’t catch all contaminated products. Bulk testing can miss a highly contaminated item mixed in with uncontaminated items. Anything         below 100 bq/kg is permitted to be sold.
This very informative video, that is just 10 minutes long, discusses the damage very small amounts of Cesium can do to children. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9d3I3S99Dc&feature=player_embedded

January 2017 saw the usual post Fukushima, seasonal increase in background level, as warmer air flows from the tropics reach this location.
