China rejected importing suntan cream from Japan for detecting cadmium, daughter nuclide of radioactive silver
On 3/2/2013, Chinese customs announced they rejected importing Japanese suntan cream. The brand is Anessa of Shiseido. They detected Cadmium from the products. The amount is not reported.
The products were already returned or abandoned.
On 6/13/2012, Shandong China also refused Japanese frozen saury and sent 24 tones (4,560,000 JPY) back to Japan for detecting excessive level of cadmium.
Ag-110m turns to be cadmium (Cd-110) by beta-decay. Half-life of Ag-110m is 250 days, Ag-110m has been measured from fishery products at least offshore Fukushima.

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.
