Japan 2011 Earthquake/Tsunami – U.S. Government Information
The EPA has its radiation air monitoring (RadNet) data, frequently asked questions, and other resources on http://www.epa.gov/japan2011/. Here you can:
- Read the daily data summary.
- Find a map of air monitoring stations and view graphs of the data.
- View laboratory analyses of air, precipitation, milk, and drinking water.
- Read frequently asked questions about EPA's radiation monitoring.
- Learn about EPA's RadNet radiation air monitoring data.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has deemed that based on current information, there is no risk to the U.S. food supply.
In response to the ongoing situation in Japan, the EPA has taken steps to increase the level of nationwide monitoring of milk, precipitation, drinking water, and other potential exposure routes.
Results from a screening sample taken March 25 from Spokane, WA detected 0.8 pCi/L of iodine-131, which is more than 5,000 times lower than the Derived Intervention Level set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
- These types of findings are to be expected in the coming days and are far below levels of public health concern, including for infants and children.
- Iodine-131 has a very short half-life of approximately eight days, and the level detected in milk and milk products is therefore expected to drop relatively quickly.
Radiation is all around us in our daily lives, and these findings are a miniscule amount compared to what people experience every day. For example, people are exposed to low levels of radiation on round trip cross country flights, watching television, and even from construction materials.
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has jurisdiction over 80 percent of the food supply, including seafood, dairy, and produce. The U.S. Department of Agriculture regulates meat, poultry, and processed egg products, while FDA regulates all other food products.
- The U.S. Department of Agriculture has stated that Japan has not exported any beef products to the United States for nearly a year.
- The U.S. Department of Agriculture has stated that Japan is not currently eligible to export any poultry or processed egg products to the U.S.
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Customs and Border Protection carefully screen all food products for unsafe substances, including radiological material at Ports of Entry.
- Learn more about keeping food safe during an emergency.
Potassium Iodide (KI)
- Only take KI on the advice of emergency management officials, public health officials, or your doctor.
- There are health risks associated with taking KI.
Food, Mail, Ships, and Cargo from Japan
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is monitoring developments in Japan carefully and uses several types of radiation detection equipment in air and sea ports, mail facilities, and elsewhere to ensure safety.
- CBP and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration carefully screen all food products for unsafe substances, including radiological material, at Ports of Entry.
- All inbound travelers, baggage, and cargo are screened for radiological materials.
- CBP employs radiation monitors at international mail facilities.
