Radioactivity Found in Japanese Farms, Spinach, Milk, Near Nuclear Meltdown

Japan’s top spokesman said Saturday that elevated levels of radiation have been found in milk and spinach near the crippled nuclear power plant in Fukushima prefecture.

The government has worked hard to play down rising fears. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told a news conference that although radiation levels exceeded government safety standards, the tested food does not pose an immediate health risk. It is the first time radiation has been detected in food since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami unleashed the nuclear crisis.
