Inspections for Radioactive Cesium in Livestock Products
For beef, four prefectures (Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima, and Tochigi) conduct inspections covering all relevant farm households. However, inspections are not required for farm households for which the relevant local government confirms that measures are being taken to prevent use of any feed produced in fields subject to voluntary suspension of distribution and use of feed or otherwise feeding management is being implemented appropriately.
Additionally, milk is also inspected periodically by Fukushima Prefecture.
