TEPCO earlier tried to explain away highly contaminated fish in the region as having escaped from the harbor at the plant. TEPCO recently took measures to make sure fish do no escape from the harbor. A rockfish pulled out of the harbor recently had 254,000 Bq/kg of cesium when tested by TEPCO.
Ex-SKF provided a translation of journalist Ryuichi Kino’s reporting of the TEPCO press conference and mentioned this relation to the contaminated fish:
“If one eats 200 gram of fish, one gets 0.8 millisievert radiation exposure.”
Apple juice pulled from a retail store in Iwate was found to have 4.1 bq/kg of cesium. Another bottle of the same drink was found contaminated also. It isn’t clear how the juice became contaminated. This also isn’t the only instance of random highly contaminated food found in Japan.
