Cesium-134/137 measured over 200 percent of safety level from Fukushima rice

According to Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, excessive amount of Cs-134/137 was detected from two unpolished rice samples produced in Fukushima city.

The rice was experimentally produced but not distributed, the farmer states. The highest reading was 220 Bq/Kg in total of Cs-134/137. The safety limit is supposed to be 100 Bq/Kg.

The sample was brought to Fukushima Agricultural Technology Centre this July.

Du césium 134/137 relevé à plus de 200 % de la limite de sécurité dans du riz de Fukushima


Selon le ministère de la Santé, du Travail et des Affaires Sociales, une quantité excessive de Cs 134/137 a été relevée dans deux échantillons de riz cru produit dans la commune de Fukushima.

Le producteur affirme que ce riz produit expérimentalement n’a pas été vendu. Le record relevé a été de 220 Bq/kg en total des Cs 134/137. La limite de sécurité est supposée être de 100 Bq/kg.
Les échantillons avaient été amenés au Fukushima Agricultural Technology Centre en ce mois de juillet.


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.
