44 economies still ban, limit Japan food imports over radiation fears
TOKYO (Kyodo) -- A total of 44 economies still ban or restrict imports of Japanese foods due to concerns over residual radiation ahead of Monday, the second anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear crisis, according to Japanese officials.
The Japanese government fears the economies could continue to impose the measures and that they could be a drag on Japan's food export business, they said.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, 10 countries including Canada and Mexico have lifted their restrictions on purchasing foods from Japan so far but major importers such as China and South Korea maintain strict measures.
China has stopped importing all kinds of food from 10 prefectures including Fukushima, which hosts the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant that was crippled by the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami, the officials said.
South Korea has suspended imports of many food items from Japan such as fish, spinach and fungi. "We have been closely watching the position of the Japanese government and its measures," a spokesperson of the Korea Food & Drug Administration said.
