Food chain radioactivity report published

The level of man-made radioactivity to which people in the UK are exposed remained below the EU legal limit during 2011, according to the 10th Radioactivity in Food and the Environment (RIFE) annual report, published this week by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

The report combines results from the Agency’s monitoring programme with those of the Environment Agency, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.

The monitoring programme measures radioactivity in different parts of the food chain, including that for people who live close to nuclear sites and eat locally produced food.
