US Group Calls For Radiation Monitoring Of Food Supply

radioactive-sandwichA US grassroots group is urging the public to support a set of efforts to improve food monitoring in the US against radioactive contamination.

The fallout from Fukushima that fell on the US and that which has been crossing the Pacific has been an area of concern with residents of the US and Canada. Government agencies have declared the issue to be a “non-issue” and either have opted to do no testing or rely on premature inaccurate testing such as the FDA’s very limited effort.

One of the major areas of concern has been the US intervention level of 1200 bq/kg for domestic and imported foods. This level is higher than most other countries in the world including Japan.
Our research shows there has been and still is some level of Fukushima attributable contamination to US domestic foods. Without widespread testing the extent of this will not be understood and will leave consumers with anxiety about the food supply.
