Food produced near the site of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan could be heading to British supermarkets due to loopholes in safety laws, an investigation has revealed.

Security experts warned the UK’s food import regulations are not strong enough to prevent products contaminated with radiation from entering the country.

Foodstuffs containing radiation typically have low levels of cesium and radioactive iodine, both which are mildly carcinogenic.

Contaminated products such as tea, noodles and chocolate bars have already been exported from Japan by fraudsters using false labels.

An investigation by the Independent newspaper discovered there is a risk such food may have already arrived in the UK due to loopholes in safety regulations.

The report follows revelations in Taiwan last month that more than 100 contaminated products from Fukushima were being sold in stores under false labels.
