Various Asian countries started screening food imports from Japan after the radiation threat level raised due to explosions at the Fukushima nuclear plant.

South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines took steps to check meat, seafood, vegetables and fruists from Japan for nuclear material, according to media reports. So far no contaminations were found in any of the tested goods.

The U.N. health body said there was no evidence of contamination outside Japan. Chinese Regulators called for radiation monitoring to track any possible contaminated goods.
