Cesium found in Fukushima cattle feed- tainted meat found in Tokyo
Straw fed to cattle at a farm in Minamisoma, Fukushima Prefecture, was found to have high levels of radioactive cesium, local officials said Monday.
Cesium was found in the meat of 11 cows shipped from there to Tokyo for processing.
In addition to the 11 cows, a total of six cows from the farm were shipped to Tokyo and Tochigi Prefecture in May and June,
Although meat from the 11 cows has not been distributed, meat from the six cows — five shipped to Tokyo and one to Tochigi — has been processed and may have reached the market, prompting local authorities to check where the meat was distributed.
