Radioactive cesium found in Meiji baby formula

TOKYO, Dec. 6, Kyodo

Radioactive cesium of up to 30.8 becquerels per kilogram has been found in infant formula produced and sold by Meiji Co., the major food company said Tuesday, citing an internal examination.

The company suspects a link with the radioactive leaks from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant damaged by the 11 March earthquake and tsunami, saying ingredients for its Meiji Step milk powder may have come into contact with airborne radioactive cesium when they were being dried at a plant in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture, between March 14 and 20.

Radioactive cesium has been found in baby formula for the first time since the March disaster, prompting the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry to begin looking into the matter.
