Samples of all 2,669 school meals served for lunch in Fukushima Prefecture in fiscal 2015 cleared the highest allowable level of 100 becquerels per kilogram for radioactive cesium specified by the Food Sanitation Act, according to the results of monitoring by the prefecture’s education board.

“We have been able to confirm the safety of school meals. We would like to continue monitoring in municipalities and at schools that desire testing,” said an official in charge of health education at the prefectural government’s office of education.
