On 10/5/2015, MHLW (Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare) reported they detected significant density of Cesium-134/137 from 46 of 50 dried persimmons produced in Fukushima prefecture.

They announce none of these samples were distributed for sale.

The samples were collected in mid September.

15 of them exceeded the food safety limit in Cs-134/137 density. The highest density was 270 Bq/Kg, which is nearly 3 times higher than food safety limit.

Le 5 octobre 2015, le MHLW (Ministère de la Santé et du Travail) indique avoir relevé une importante radioactivité en césium 134/137 dans 46 des 50 kakis séchés produits dans la préfecture de Fukushima et analysés.

Ils déclarent qu’aucun de ces échantillons n’a été distribué pour la vente.
Les échantillons ont été prélevés mi-septembre.

15 d’entre eux dépassent la limite de sécurité alimentaire pour la radioactivité du Cs 134/137. Le record est de 270 Bq/kg, soit près de 3 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire.

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.
