Radioactive organic jam sold in US

The jam is from an Italian company but was caught in Japan by a newspaper that decided to check some imported foods to see how they tested for radiation. The radiation level was above the Japanese govt. permissible levels and has been pulled from stores. Since the US and EU have ridiculously high intervention levels before they will pull foods this product is sold here without any testing or restriction.

“Fior di frutta organic fruits spread” blueberry imported from Italy
164Bq/kg of cesium-137 by test commissioned by Shukan Asahi
This jam is sold in a number of US outlets including Whole Foods and Amazon. So far only the blueberry has been tested.
