Limits of consumption and shipping concerning agricultural and livestock products

Due to the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, radioactive substance which exceeds the provisional standard of Japan was detected from the agricultural and livestock products produced in Fukushima Prefecture. In the morning of March 23rd, the Japanese government advised business operators to refrain from shipping these goods, as well as advising the citizens to refrain from eating them. The products which have been instructed to limit consuming and shipping are listed below as of 11 a.m. of March 23, 2011.
However, the Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan, Yukio Edano has stated that the temporary consumption of these products do not have an effect on human body. He went on to say that because this situation is expected to continue for a long time, the government has requested to refrain from shipping the products from an early stage to prevent citizens from eating them, just in case.
