Fire at Tokyo Electric Power Co nuclear complex sickens worker

A fire broke out at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear complex owned by Tokyo Electric Power Co, a spokesman said.

A worker was sickened from inhaling smoke, but there was no radiation leak from the incident, the company said.

The nuclear power complex, which was put out of action caused by extensive damage in a 2007 earthquake is reportedly undergoing repairs and quake resistance enhancement (!)

The incident occurred within two days of a full week’s inspection by a team of 10 experts from the United Nations nuclear watchdog, International Atomic Energy Agency, that was assessing earthquakes safety measures.

Australian barley chemically contaminated

Japan detects pesticides in Australian barley imports

Japanese government suspended purchase of Australian barley after detecting two insecticide ingredients three times the legal standards for residual pesticides.

The high levels of amitraz and fipronil, used to exterminate insects, were found by Mitsubishi Trading co., which imported the grains, at the request of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

“The farm ministry learned that the two substances are banned for use on barley in Australia. It plans to investigate with the Australian government why the chemicals were used on the grain.” Asahi reported. (Source)

It’s not known whether the Japanese officials test New Zealand wine and farm produce for dangerous chemicals.
