Japanese Supermarket Chain To Take Firm Stance Against Contamination

Supermarket chain Aeon Co. will expand its range of foodstuffs subject to radiation checks and yank any items with even trace levels.

Any food items with more than 50 becquerels of radiation have been removed from shelves, even though the government set the safety standard at 500 becquerels.

Aeon said it will post a list of items found to be contaminated on its website, along with the radiation readings.
