FDA Growing List Of Banned Foods From Japan, March Update List

The FDA import alert was published just recently and details a ban on Japanese imports due to “radionuclide contamination.”

The United States recently tightened restrictions of food imports from Japan. According to Import Alert 99-33 issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a list of Japanese food will be banned unless they pass physical examination. This list includes milk, butter, milk-based infant formula, other milk products, vegetables and vegetable products, rice and whole grain, fish, meat and poultry, venus clams, sea urchins, yuzu fruit, and Kiwi fruit.

The FDA says it will continue consultation with the Japanese government to ensure products from the affected prefectures do not pose a health risk to U.S. consumers. The FDA will continue monitoring the public health risks and when appropriate, remove the Import Alert.
