Baby Formula Radiation

December 7, 2011 by staff 

Baby Formula Radiation, Manufacturers and mothers with young children were quick in reacting Wednesday to news of cesium-tainted baby formula being sold in markets, even though the reported contamination levels were well below the government-set limit.

Although experts stressed that such levels would not harm the health of babies even if they continued drinking the contaminated dry milk product, Meiji Suteppu (Meiji Step), mothers with young children weren’t ready to breathe a sigh of relief yet — instead expressing a sense of distrust in dairies.

“The amount of cesium may be small but babies drink such products every day, some more than five times each day,” Ai Tatsuno, a mother of four — including a 2-year-old — told The Japan Times.

Tatsuno moved from Yokohama to Okinawa in April with her family following the meltdowns at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. And now — with news of radioactive cesium of up to 30.8 becquerels per kilogram being found in the Meiji Co. baby formula — many questions are surfacing, Tatsuno said, including the level of cleanliness where such products are being made.
