Thai FDA assures public of imported Japanese seafood’s safety
« on: September 26, 2023, 09:35:16 PM »
Thailand’s Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) has reassured consumers that seafood imported from Japan remains safe for consumption, TFDA deputy secretary general Lertchai Lertvut has said.

The confirmation came amid international concerns about the release of treated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant, which was devastated by a tsunami in 2011.

“We have put strict safety measures in place since the Fukushima plant started releasing treated radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean on August 24th, he said.

The FDA has conducted tests on 75 samples of at risk seafood, including squid, molluscs and crabs, to analyse the cesium-134 and cesium-137 content.

Lertchai said the results from 42 of the 73 samples analysed so far have shown no radioactivity that exceeds international standards.
