AVA stops food imports from two more Japan prefectures

AVA stops food imports from two more Japan prefectures

SINGAPORE: Singapore's Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) has suspended imports of fruits and vegetables from two more prefectures of Japan. The move comes after the detection of radioactive contaminants in four samples of vegetables imported from the quake-and-tsunami-hit country. The samples come from Chiba and Ehime prefectures. Prior to this, AVA has already suspended the import of produce from Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi and Gunma. To date, 161 samples of fresh produce like seafood, fruits, vegetables and meat were tested. Latest results from samples collected from shipments imported on 23 March showed radioactive contaminants in vegetables such as mitsuba, nanohana, mizuna and perilla leaf. AVA says all affected shipments have been detained and will be disposed.
