FDA Stops Some Food Imports from Japan

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 - 8:04am

The Food and Drug Administration announced it will stop importing dairy products and produce from the area of Japan where a nuclear reactor is leaking radiation.

The FDA said those foods will be detained at entry, and will not be sold to the public.

This is a harsher move by the FDA; previously, the agency only said it would step up screening of those foods.

Other foods imported from Japan, such as seafood, will still be sold to the public, but will first be screened for radiation.
