- Fukushima: Ban on 4322 rice farms. Plant manager hospitalised
Tokyo (AsiaNews / Agencies) - The Fukushima Prefecture has decided to ban the trade of rice from 2,381 farms in Nihonmatsu and Motomiya as a result of high levels of radioactive cesium (above 500 becquerels / kg) found in the harvests in the area near the cities of Date and Fukushima. The provision, the latest in a series since the crisis at the nuclear power plant damaged by the earthquake / tsunami of 11 March, thus reinforces the ban already in place in recent days and brings to 4322 the total number of farms involved.
