Why Why You Want to Know Where Your Food Is From

The FDA recently announced that it will halt imports of milk and produce from four prefectures that are closest to the damaged nuclear plant in Fukushima, Japan.  Foods from other parts of Japan, including seafood, will be checked for radiation to see if they are at acceptable levels that can be sold. However, the FDA has had difficulty in the past with tracking food production facilities that are in other countries. While seafood will be checked for radiation if it comes from Japan, it is not clear if  fish is caught in the sea near Japan by another country’s ships will be screened. Obviously, this is a concern as seafood does not respect national borders. This is a story to follow in the future.
