Recently the FNN News reported the following:
In addition, regarding the matter that the trader in Osaka Prefecture had stocked with two, it was clarified on the night of the 11th that they were sold to the shop in Tokushima Prefecture by the trader in Ehime Prefecture.
It was straw that the farmers had been giving to cows as food that caused the problem.
In the interview, in Fukushima Prefecture it was said "At the outside, the rice plant straw used for managing the rice field was collected, and was given to the cows as domestic animal after the nuclear plan accident occurred".
In the investigation in Fukushima Prefecture, cesium at 75,000 Becquerel, which was about 60 times above the standard of the country was detected from the straw that farmers had given to the cows.
This farmer seemed to have said that"To feed them even knowing that it was forbidden because of the shortage in mixed forage".
Having noted that, the Fukushima Prefecture, regarding the handling of the feed, would do re-checking to ensure there were no similar cases; in addition, it was decided that a blanket testing would be started to check whether radioactive substance was included in the meat shipped from the pre-designated shelter districts etc.
The Chief Cabinet Secretary Edano described, "About the blanket testing, it is agreed that the ministries concerned would examine what was actually possible, and do it for the purpose of improving safety or increasing the sense of security ".
It seems that people have good reasons to cast doubt over their government's ability to handle the crisis.
