High Radiation in Japanese Fish Raises Concerns
FDA Will Screen Japanese Imported Fish for Radiation

<snip>article and video

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it will require seafood imported from Japan to be checked for radiation before it enters the food supply. But even with the new screenings, no one in the U.S. government is saying "stop eating tuna."

"Other food products from this area, including seafood, although not subject to the Import Alert, will be diverted for testing by FDA before they can enter the food supply," the FDA said in a prepared statement. "FDA will also be monitoring and testing food products, including seafood, from other areas of Japan as appropriate."

BTW here's another example of people who want the gov't to do something -- test the tuna caught off the coast of Oregon and Washington. I don't believe they are going to test ALL the tuna and other food products from the ocean. I bet there aren't enough gov't workers to do this extra bit -- not with all the downsizing gov't has been doing for years. And forget about it if there is a gov't shutdown.
