JP Gov is too slow to govern

Following up this article ..39,960 Bq/Kg from ash in Okinawa Pizza shop

On 2/10/2012, Foresty agency commanded local governments and organizations in food industry not to use ash to remove dirt , made form firewood and coal from 17 prefectures of eastern Japan.
It is because they measured cesium from ash used for a Soba shop in Okinawa. This new restriction contradicts themselves to assert it was not a dangerous level at all.

However, they still allow them to use firewood if it’s kept inside.

Currently, the safety limit of firewood is 40 Bq/Kg, the one of coal is 280 Bq/Kg but there is no safety limit for ash from firewood and coal. Foresty agent talks, they couldn’t expect them to use ash from contaminated firewood and coal.
