Radiation higher than the regulatory limit has been found in beef from Fukushima prefecture, the same province as the embattled nuclear plant.

The levels were slightly above the guidelines set by Japan’s Nuclear Safety Commission — 510 becquerels (a measurement of radioactivity by weight), compared to the official limit of 500 becquerels. For reference, Japan earlier set a 100-becquerel threshold at which infants shouldn’t drink tap water, with a 300-becquerel maximum for adults.

The meat will not be sold and will be retested, the ministry said.

The finding is the first such in beef, although authorities have banned the sale and transport of numerous vegetables grown in the area after tests detected radiation.
