Japan could ban Fukushima beef

While the Japanese have discovered that cattle were contaminated, the sale of cattle in the prefecture of Fukushima, where a nuclear incident occurred four months ago, could be banned, says the 'Friday, July 15 Kyodo. According to the authorities of the prefecture of Fukushima, 42 cattle raised on a farm Asakawa, about sixty miles from the rugged Central, were transported and sold to Tokyo and other cities of Japan in recent months, although they consumed food highly radioactive.

More than four months after the nuclear incident, Japan has not yet established centralized control of radioactivity in food, relying on tests conducted by the prefectures and municipalities.
