Japan Reviewing Water Tests Showing Iodine at 10,000 Times Limit

Tokyo Electric Power Co. said test results may be incorrect that detected radioactive iodine about 10,000 times the safety limit in underground water at its Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant.

Tokyo Electric found the radioactive water near the No. 1 reactor turbine building while performing tests recommended by Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission, according to a statement yesterday. The company later said those results and others may be wrong and it will re-examine the data.
