Japan : Green tea made by 5 Shizuoka plants contaminated with radiation

Via Japan Today :

" SHIZUOKA : The Shizuoka prefectural government said Tuesday it has asked five tea manufacturing plants in the city of Shizuoka to voluntarily stop shipping green tea leaves and recall those already shipped as they were found to contain radioactive cesium in excess of the legal limit.

The five are among 20 plants in the city’s Warashina district inspected by prefectural government experts earlier in the day following the recent finding of the radioactive substance above the limit in tea leaves produced at another plant in the district."
