The food will not contain radiation. It will not be pushing anyones dosemeter over the edge.
Radiation like light is not there without the source.
They are exposing the food to a different frequecy of energy than light.
They are not packing the lightbulb with the lettuce. Just shining the light on it before they ship.
God help anyone who gets the tinyest part of the lightbulb in their salad though. The probability of rapid onset of cancer will approach infinite.
I am not saying it's a good nutrition move. I'm just saying they are not making the food glow in the dark. Not wholesale anyway.
Which brings up a very interesting question, When you have a massive radiation source, how do you detect the presence of tiny radiation sources within
the larger field of radiation, to prevent their escape. I don't think you can.
I wonder if they will bother to monitor the exiting food for stray radioactive particles. Why would they, it would only introduce liability for
failure to stop any. No monitoring, no evidence that any ever escaped, no liability.
I have read very bad things about what it does to the nutrition. I have no reason to doubt those who say it is bad, but I'm not qualified to judge
