Safety of Agricultural Products, etc.

March 31, 2011

 

   I understand that you have anxiety about safety of agricultural products, etc. due to the breaking out of the accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

   Regarding this accident, the national and local governments are investigating for safety confirmation of agricultural products, etc. to the best of our ability.

As a result, the agricultural products, etc. which are over the regulation level are restrained from shipping. Now, such agrucultural products, etc. are not distributed to market.

On the other hand, based on the resultof the investigation, the agricultural products, etc. which are not restrained from shipping have been accepted to market.

MAFF, as well as other Ministries, continues to do our best to provide accurate information based on scientific and objective basis.
Dear consumers and retailers,I sincerely request your shopping and business behavior as usual.
