Czech authorities will start testing food and other imports from Japan for radiation in the coming days, a spokeswoman for the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority said on Wednesday. Inspection employees together with customs officials will take samples from Japanese imports, and will also test Japanese foodstuffs that are already on the Czech market, although they do not expect to find any problems, the spokeswoman said. The Czech Republic imports foods items such as tea, legume products, fruit, soya sauce, pasta and spirits from Japan; last year’s food imports from Japan were worth 28 million crowns.
