About foods that detected radiation above the safety limit

As of March 19th, radiation above the national safety limit was found in spinach from Ibaraki prefecture and milk from Fukushima prefecture.
However, if you drink the contaminated milk for one year every day, the amount of exposure to radiation will be as much as one time of exposure to CT-scan; for spinach, it will be one fifth of CT-scan if you eat it for one year, therefore, there will be no affect on your health immediately.
The foods which have radiation over the level, which has been fixed by the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan, will be kept out from the sales channels by the local governments.
