(1040) Relatives in the countryside...


...are useful for many things. Among them are the gifts in items of everyday need, like in this case, this rice in a 20 kg/55lb bag. The little sticker has a QR code with information about the rice's quality; considering that the particular one comes from Fukishima, there are more reasons to check. The regulations in place state that for rice to be safe, it must be less than 100  becquerels of cesium/kilo -according to the sticker, this one is 25  becquerels.
