India Bans Japan Food


NEW DELHI—India imposed a three-month suspension on food imports from Japan, fearing contamination due to radiation leaks from a crippled nuclear plant in the quake-hit nation, a government statement said Tuesday. 

The ban can also be extended “till such time as credible information is available that the radiation hazard has subsided to acceptable limits,” the statement said.
Radiation levels around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, damaged by the massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11, spiked following a new explosion at one reactor and a fire at another.
“Initially we didn’t consider seriously about banning food imports from Japan as the volume was so low. But then we thought, why take risk, when something can be prevented,” a senior Indian government official said.
