Japan changes scope of restrictions on farm products | Kyodo News

The government decided Monday to change the scope of its restrictions on tap water and shipments of farm products based on radioactivity readings amid the continuing crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, though maintaining the current consumption limits for radioactive substances in them, its top spokesman said.

Following the release of radioactive particles from the tsunami-stricken nuclear plant, the government has restricted shipments of some farm products from four nearby prefectures and advised residents in some municipalities not to drink tap water.

But it will now impose such restrictions on agricultural products on a town basis, instead of blanketing the whole prefecture, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said at a news conference.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
