Note the extremely high levels of contamination. Total allowed radionuclide contamination levels for Japanese food is 100 Bq/kg. It is less for children. The US allows the most at 1200 Bq/kg for Cesium only, and over 1500 Bq/kg total. If all Americans ate the maximum contamination levels of food, allowed by the US FDA, for several years, it would result in an additional 1,000 excess cancers per 100,000 people or 1 in 100 (1%) – by conservative estimates; some researchers put it at double. The US no longer allows food labeling of meat, buckling to a Canadian and Mexican lawsuits. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/canada-seeks-3b-in-retaliatory-tariffs-against-u-s-over-meat-labelling-1.3100662 It should be clear where contaminated Japanese food is going. Europe and the US accept Japan testing, too, putting Japan on the honor system. Most of the world has less protective standards than Japan, suggesting this food has been and will be exported elsewhere.
