safe sushi in the bay area

sundeck sue | Nov 11, 2011 08:54 AM

I had been privately worrying (what I do) about eating sushi in San Francisco and the East Bay, post-Japanese nuclear disaster, wondering if any seafood from Japan was being flown into the Bay Area for use by Japanese sushi bars here.

But I hadn't heard anyone else worrying. So I kept eating sushi.

The recent reports of high levels of radioactive particles in food and drink in Japan, including Tokyo, has renewed my angst and prompted me to worry aloud.

Does anyone know the answer to the question of whether seafood from Japan is making its way here--and I guess, the attendant query, does seafood being flown to the Bay Area from Japan (or anywhere else) get geiger-countered or otherwise checked for safe consumption?
