New Japanese Propaganda: ‘Eat Fish’

Japanese new propaganda “Eat fish” (Fukushima Diary, Aug 24, 2012):

38,000 Bq/Kg of cesium was detected from Fukushima fish. (cf. 38,000 Bq/kg from Fukushima fish)

Radiation is still leaking from Fukushima plant, fishery food is obviously contaminated.

People avoid marine products, but Japanese government is trying to spread the radioactive fish.

On 8/23/2012, Japanese fisheries agency started the brand called “fast fish” to sell with supermarket chain and food makers. It’s pre-cooked fish like fast food.

The purpose is to make people consume more sea food. It’s on the assumption that people are buying less fishery products because it takes time to cook supposedly. However, because pre-cooked fish is defined as “daily dish”, sellers are not obliged to label the origin of the products.

Japanese fisheries agency has already admitted 64 kinds of products as “fast fish”. One of the major supermarket chain, Itoyokado has already started selling 6 kinds of the fast fish products at 160 branches.

The agency is going to add more products to the fast fish list every 1~2 months.
