Wild boar meat factory to open in Chiba


On 12/24/2012, Fukushima Diary reported “Wild boar meat processing factory stopped for excessive contamination in Chiba”. [URL]

However the meat processing factory is to open because the shipping restriction of boar meat was lifted this January. They are going to have the opening ceremony on 2/11/2013.

They can potentially process 350 wild boars and deer annually but because these animals eat wild grown products of a mountain, their meat accumulate radioactive material.

Une boucherie industrielle de viande de sanglier va ouvrir dans Chiba

Le 24 décembre 2012, le Fukushima Diary rapportait Une récente usine de conditionnement de viande de sanglier arrêtée à Chiba pour excessive contamination.

Néanmoins, la boucherie industrielle va ouvrir parce que les restrictions sur les expéditions de viande de sanglier ont été supprimées en janvier dernier. Ils vont l’inaugurer le 11 février 2013.

Ils peuvent potentiellement conditionner 350 sangliers et daims par an, alors que leur viande accumule les matières radioactives puisque ces animaux mangent la végétation sauvage des montagnes.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
