Radiation test on travelers and goods from Japan

THE city will tighten radiation check on travelers from Japan and their luggage and test foods from Japan before they go to the local market to prevent nuclear pollution, the Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau said this morning.

The bureau has installed radiation testing equipment at airports and seaports. Travelers will be quarantined if they are found exposed to a high level of radiation.

Officials said food imports from Japan are mostly seafood, grain, drinking water, vegetables and fruits. The food will be subject to radiation test at the port or in the lab.

The bureau said it will keep a close watch on the development of the radiation crisis in Japan after the March 11 earthquake and will take further measures if necessary.
