Where can I get information on seafood safety related to Fukushima?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting public health by assuring the safety of our nation’s food supply. In a March 2014 statement, the FDA indicated that there was no evidence that radionuclides from the Fukushima incident were present in the U.S. food supply at levels that would pose a public health concern.
