Questions and answers:
Asked on: June 15, 2013 Question: Yes. Is this produced in a safe, non radiation affected environment. After the nuclear disaster in Japan, I am told many products test as being inundated with low level radiation. Green teas, especially from Japan. This product has Green tea. Are the sources for this product from Japan?
Per the manufacturer:
"As of January 30, 2013, Okayama City where Dr. Ohhiraâ€™s manufacturing plant is located, registered the same high safety level that was present before the accident. According to the recent test result, the air dose rate of radioactive substances in Okayama was 0.046 micro Sv/h. The ambient air around Fugi Capsuleâ€™s factory was 0.029 micro Sv/h, and the Kansai International Airport, where we transport our products was 0.043 micro Sv/h.
And as with previous test results, Dr. Ohhiraâ€™s products test completely negative for Iodine and Cesium."
