960 Bq/kg of Cs-134/137 detected from wild boar in Fukushima

According to MHLW (Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare), 960 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 was measured from the meat of wild boar in Fukushima.

The sampling date was 6/11/2016. This reading is over 9 times much as food safety limit.

Cs-134 density was 154 Bq/Kg to prove it is contaminated from Fukushima accident.


From this report MHLW released on 7/19/2016, significant density of Cs-134/137 was detected from all of 33 wild boar samples and it exceeded the food safety limit (100 Bq/Kg) in 2/3 samples.

MHLW reports none of these wild boar meat was distributed for sale.

Un sanglier de Fukushima à 960 Bq/kg de Cs 134/137


Selon le MHLW (Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare = ministère de la Santé, du Travail et des Affaires Familliales), on a relevé 960 Bq/Kg de césium 134/137 dans de la viande de sanglier de Fukushima.

L’échantillon est du 11 juin 2016. Ce relevé est à plus de 9 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire.
La radioactivité en Cs 134 en est de 154 Bq/kg prouvant qu’il s’agit bien d’une contamination issue de la catastrophe de Fukushima. Dans ce rapport que le MHLW a publié le 19 juillet 2016, une radioactivité importante en Cs 134/137 a été relevée dans les 33 échantillons de viande de sanglier et pour 2/3 des échantillons en excès par rapport à la limite de sécurité alimentaire (de 100 Bq/kg).
Le MHLW indique qu’aucune de ces viandes de sanglier n’a été mise en vente.


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.
