Contaminated radioactive material in concrete continues to be found as the Japanese government works to find the extent of the distribution.  The gravel being stored from quarries in Fukushima prefecture was contaminated by radioactive materials released by the Fukushima Daiichi plant.  This gravel was sold to companies, like mixed-concrete companies who used the materials on construction projects.

The latest finds show that companies like these used contaminated concrete in single-family housing and it was also used in 6 hospitals and nursing homes in Nihonmatsu and Fukushima.
