Japanese vegetable contaminated: FDA

Radioactive contamination has been detected in udo – a type of Japanese vegetable -brought into Thailand by Japanese passengers. Thais are advised not to eat it, regardless of the source, the Food and Drugs Administration warned Thursday. Although the contamination level is within safe limits, eating udo or bringing it back to Thailand is not advised, said FDA secretarygeneral Phiphat Yingseri.
“Those passengers carrying a few kilos of Japanese food may enjoy leniency… but those who carry them in large amounts should be ready for inspection and quarantine,” he added.
Except for seafood, FDA officials are ready to inspect and quarantine Japanese food found to be contaminated at supermarkets and restaurants that sell imported food from Japan, he said.
