Beef sent to Tokyo for processing was found to be over the limit of 150 bq/kg. The beef was from Miyagi Prefecture, north of Fukushima. This area is generally claimed to be safe yet we frequently find contamination in food and the environment reported in this region.
Japan recently announced they would be shipping Fukushima beef to restaurants in the US without details how or if it would be tested by either country or what limits would be used. The US intervention level is 1000 bq/kg, double the Japanese emergency levels of 500 bq/kg.
Farmers in Japan have largely been left with no assistance. The central government has opted for shoving contaminated products through the food system rather than widespread compensation for impacted farms.
