----------- [ Current event for CT_Millstone_3 @ 100 %; RX Mode: Power Op ]
 
20180412 | FITNESS-FOR-DUTY REPORT INVOLVING DISCOVERY OF KOMBUCHA TEA INSIDE THE PROTECTED AREA |
https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-colle...ml#en53328

"At 1148 EDT on April 12, 2018,
a 16.2 ounce bottle of Kombucha tea was found in a small refrigerator in the Administration Building inside the Protected Area.

The bottle was found to have a small amount missing from the contents.

Kombucha tea is a fermented tea containing trace amounts of alcohol, and is legally sold without restrictions.

Dominion Energy Nuclear Connecticut had previously notified its workforce that Kombucha tea was prohibited from being consumed or carried onsite.

The owner has not yet been determined.

This is considered an alcoholic beverage and is being reported pursuant to the requirements of 10 CFR 26.719 as a 24 hour report."

The NRC Resident Inspector, the State of Connecticut, and local authorities have been notified.

[ "local authorities have been notified" ? for what? ]

[ This is the kind of report that's done to make it seem as if the owners/management are serious about safety. While everyone is distracted with this non event, they are doing something they don't want anyone to notice. ]
