We all heard the news of how the Tsunami damaged nuclear plants in Japan. This resulted in radiation leaking into the ocean. Indeed debris is expected to flow as far as California.
Many people we evacuated from the worst hit area. Water and grass was contaminated.
Americans have been greatly concerned and sales of anti- radiation products such as radiation meters have gone through the roof. In many cases, these devices have run out of stock.
The US government is especially concerned about radiation risk in relation to food and raw ingredients that are important from Japan. They FDA have stated that there is minimum risk that is expected from the nuclear plant damage.
However for those of us who love sushi and who also worry about radiation this is a gnawing problem that is at the back of your minds. Not only can the radiation come from the sushi but also from the rice rolls and seaweed that comes with the sushi. Some international hotels have stopped serving sushi either from the region of the nuclear disaster or from Japan entirely.
Some experts have noted that only a small proportion of the sushi consumed in the US comes from Japan- and so the risk should be minimal.
Our opinion is that the Sushi in the US can be guardedly considered safe. However if there are any new developments this post will be updated.
