Mat Sabu: Fish from Japan safe to consume


KUALA LUMPUR: There are no restrictions in the import of agricultural and fish products from Japan, says Agriculture and Food Security Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Sabu.

He said the Health Ministry always monitors food safety – including conducting radiation inspections – and confirmed that fish products imported from Japan were safe for consumption.

“However, we rate all fish products from Japan at level four, the level we pay the most attention to. So eat any fish products that come from Japan, they are safe,” he said after a bilateral meeting with Japanese Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Miyashita Ichiro here yesterday, Bernama reported.

Previously, several countries had raised concerns after Tokyo dumped processed radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean.

The action prompted China, Hong Kong and North Korea to take immediate action to restrict marine products from Japan.
