Results of inspections on radioactivity levels in Meat and Hen Eggs

In relation to the accident occurred at the nuclear plant in Fukushima Prefecture, relevant prefectural governments have been inspecting radioactive materials in food, including livestock products.

 

Following tables show the summary of the test results by each category of agricultural products since April 1st, 2013 in 17 prefectures to which the Government prescribes to conduct the test※. Specific data of each sample tested is available on the webpage of Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) (http://www.mhlw.go.jp/english/topics/2011eq/). The concentration of radioactive cesium is quantified by Germanium semiconductor detectors or NaI Scintillation Detectors. 

 

Radioactivity over the standards (500Bq/kg)  by GOJ is NOT detected from any samples from meat and hen eggs as of September 30, 2012, other than beef from limited numbers of cattle (153) and pork from limited numbers of pig (1) fed with contaminated feed by radioactive cesium.

Radioactive cesium over the new standard limits (100Bq/kg) was detected in only 6 samples of beef, 1 sample of pork and 1 sample of horse meat, those meats were thrown away and removed from food chain, even though the new standard limit came into force for beef on October 1st, 2012.

After October 1st, 2012, radioactive cesium over the new standard limits (100Bq/kg) was detected in only 2 samples of beef. Those beef were  thrown away and removed from food chain.

 

To ensure safety of beef, following measures have been taken against Beef contamination by the Government : http://www.kantei.go.jp/foreign/kan/topics/201108/measures_beef.pdf

New standard limits for radioactive cesium

 New standard limits for radioactive cesium in foods are enforced as of April 1, 2012. Trasitional measures are set for some comodities (rice, beef, soybeen) which needs a certain period of

preparation to prevent any confusion in distributionat the time of shift to new standard limits. The related information of the MHLW website: http://www.mhlw.go.jp/english/topics/2011eq/index.html

Drinking Water 10Bq/kg
Milk 50Bq/kg

General Foods

(Including meat and eggs)

100Bq/kg
Infant Foods 50Bq/kg
