Radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit has been detected in four tea products on the market that were made using tea leaves produced in Saitama and Chiba prefectures, a recent inspection by the health ministry showed.

For radiation checks, the National Institute of Health Sciences purchased the Chiba product in May and the Saitama products in August.

Against the legal limit of 500 becquerels per kilogram, a tea product from Chiba contained 2,720 becquerels of radioactive cesium, and three Saitama products had between 800 and 1,530 becquerels.

It is the first time that radioactive cesium exceeding the legal limit has been detected in tea from Saitama.
