Alaska seafood safe from radiation
This article was originally published in August 2014
The Alaskan government received results from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on radiation testing of Alaska seafood and the results confirm seafood in the North Pacific and Alaska waters poses no radiation-related health concerns. The FDA tested samples of halibut, pollock, salmon and black cod and found no detections of the Fukushima-related radioisotopes Iodine-131, Cesium-134 or Cesium-137. There was some detection of background or naturally occurring radiation but the results indicate no appreciable risk.
