Fishermen unload their catch at the Hirakata fish market in Kitaibaraki, Ibaraki prefecture, Japan, south of the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on April 6. Levels of radioactive iodine and caesium in seawater immediately outside the plant have spiked, raising fears over marine life in a country whose diet depends heavily on seafood.

Was the FDA not saying all fish from Japan were safe to eat ? http://windows7forums.com/water-cooler/63382-fda-all-fish-japan-safe-eat.html

Thats the American , Food and Drugs Administration . They are there to look after your welfare, if you are an, American Citizen. Surely they would not try to get you to eat contaminated food ?
