Radiation Traces Found in U.S. Milk (WSJ)

The U.S. government said Wednesday that traces of radiation have been found in milk in Washington state, but said the amounts are far too low to trigger any public-health concern.

The Environmental Protection Agency said a March 25 sample of milk produced in the Spokane, Wash., area contained a 0.8 pico curies per literlevel of iodine-131, which it said was less than one five-thousandth of the safety safety guideline set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The EPA said it increased monitoring after radiation leaked from Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. It expects more such findings in coming days, but in amounts "far below levels of public-health concern, including for infants and children."MORE>>>>

Trace amounts today can end up being significant later if a plume of that garbage gets caught in a cloud and then dumps it on the west coast. Also long term "trace" amounts build up to become an issue. Wonder if it actually becomes what the FDA considers dangerous if they would actually tell us or just bury it?
