Due to the current situation surrounding Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant in Japan, the FDA has been taking a very vigorous screening process for imports from Japan and working closely with import brokers and port authorities to continue to ensure that imported food is safe.
We felt very grateful that the FDA took time to come over to our warehouse and assured the safety of our green tea. As the officer continued examining our products with a special device, the radiation count kept showing absolutely "0" with all of our products. We have learned that the scale is set from 0 to 9. "The level 9 is when I would run screaming." said the officer. We laughed.
Have a nice tea time!
