it must be easy to avoid this Rice!
Until Fukushima, this was quite true. Japanese rice was typically expensive in most countries. Most of their production was used domestically, as
foreign imports were subject (and still are) to massive import tarriffs.
There is little risk of walking into a health-food store and 'acidentally' picking up a bag of rice labelled "proudly grown in fukushima
But honestly what I would be more concerned about is rice (and other Japanese crops) being shipped out to another country, ostensibly for disposal, or
use as animal feed or lord knows what else, and then imported to western countries with a false country of origin.
China already floods our stores with honey with false country of origin, I can't for a moment think they'd be above doing the same thing with
contaminated Japanese rice if there was a yuan in it.
