#Singapore bans food from Kanto area (including Tokyo) over radiation fears:

Furthermore, according to the EU authorities, feed fat potentially contaminated with dioxins has been delivered to farms only in Germany. The authorities have taken action to block all potentially affected farms from sending their products into the market. The EU has assured that the contaminated food products originating from the affected farms are being traced and withdrawn from the market.

The EU authorities have also assured that should further investigations reveal export to countries outside EU, the authorities of the affected countries will be immediately informed.
