Restrictions on Foods From Japan Widen on Radiation Levels

Australia and Singapore joined the U.S. and Hong Kong in restricting food imports from Japan as elevated radiation levels were found outside an evacuation radius around the damaged Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.

Singapore suspended imports of milk and milk products, fruit and vegetables, seafood and meat from areas affected by the nuclear power accident, the nation’s Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority said on its website. Australia said it would place a “holding order” on some products from four prefectures.
