It’s Official California Milk is Radiated by Fukushima Fallout

 This is serious in the biggest milk producing state. 

“The Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that radiation was found in a March 25 milk sample from Spokane, Wash. The California Department of Public Health said on its website that a similar result was found March 28 in San Luis Obispo County.”

UPDATE FROM DAIRYHERD.COM:

“News outlets in California are reporting that additional testing of the California milk supply is under way. Despite these reports, it is not true at this time.

No additional testing of milk in California is being done. Milk is tested on a routine basis, once per month for radiation. “This is typical routine testing and has been done for many years,” says Mike Sicilia, spokesperson with the California Department of Public Health.”

UPDATE:

“Dean Foods Co., the largest U.S. dairy processor, has not been directly affected by the situation in Japan, company spokeswoman Liliana Esposito said in an e-mail statement. Dean Foods, based in Dallas, is in close contact with dairy organizations working with U.S. government agencies to make sure the dairy industry is taking “all appropriate action,” Esposito said.

California is the biggest U.S. milk-producing state in the U.S., according to the United States Department of Agriculture. Dean Foods gets a “significant” amount of milk from California, Esposito said.”

UPDATE It was stated in a comment thread (HuffPo? I am not sure) that the tested herd was at Cal Poly SLO’s ag school herd.  Unverified. -Bill

  1. In most cases nuclear reactors have to be subsidized by taxpayers. When nuclear reactors leak as shown in Japan, it can be hugely expensive; consider Japan’s conservative damage estimates at $330 Billion; more if damaged reactors melt down spreading high levels of radiation. In the U.S. too many nuclear reactors are close to large U.S. populations; 300 miles is close where communities are downwind. In addition to catastrophic health costs, a leaking reactor could for decades destroy the value of real estate of entire cities and shutdown industries. The potential risks of building more nuclear reactors and continuing to operate old reactors in the U.S. cannot be justified considering the potential catastrophic downside of long-term health and financial costs to U.S. Citizens. From a military standpoint, U.S. enemies would only have to target the 100 U.S. plus nuclear reactors to spread deadly radiation to large cities. Nuclear reactors are a losing bet when you consider the downside.

  2. MY HEART IS BREAKING AND MY GRIEF IS SO GREAT OVER WHAT IS HAPPENING. i SIT IN AW OVER 150 NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS THAT HAVE BEEN FINANCED BY OUR TAX DOLLAR OVER THE YEARS AND WHERE THEY HAVE BEEN PLACED ON OR NEAR FAULTS.
