FDA Solves the Radiation of Seafood by Irradiating Seafood, What?

Staff Writer, J.J. West
Food / Radiation 

In its continuing effort to destroy food and nutrition, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has decided to irradiate seafood:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is amending our current food additive regulations to allow the safe use of ionizing radiation on crustaceans (e.g., crab, shrimp, lobster, crayfish, and prawns) to control foodborne pathogens and extend the shelf life. Our action responds to a food additive petition submitted by the National Fisheries Institute. Our decision is based on a rigorous safety assessment that considered 1) potential toxicity, 2) the effect of irradiation on nutrients, and 3) potential microbiological risk that may result from treating crustaceans with ionizing radiation. The evaluation also considered previous evaluations of the safety of irradiation of other foods including poultry, meat, molluscan shellfish, iceberg lettuce, and fresh spinach. This rule covers raw, frozen, cooked, partially cooked, shelled, or dried crustaceans, or cooked, or ready-to-cook, crustaceans processed with spices or small amounts of other food ingredients.

At the maximum permitted dose of 6.0 kiloGray, this new use of ionizing radiation will reduce, but not entirely eliminate, the number of pathogenic (illness causing) microorganisms in or on crustaceans. The maximum dosage of irradiation approved is capable of reducing a number of pathogens that may be found in crustaceans, including Listeria, Vibrio, and E. coli. Irradiation is not a substitute for proper food-handling practices; therefore crustaceans treated with ionizing radiation must be stored, handled, and cooked in the same way as non-irradiated foods.

Under 21 CFR 179.26(c), we require that irradiated foods bear the international symbol for irradiation (radura) and carry the statement "Treated with radiation" or "Treated by irradiation" on the food label. Consumers will continue to be able to identify irradiated foods, including crustaceans, by the presence of the irradiation statement and symbol on the label. For foods not in package form, the logo and phrase must be displayed to the purchaser with either the labeling of the bulk container plainly in view or a counter sign, car, or other appropriate device bearing the information that the product has been treated with radiation. We do not require that multi-ingredient foods that contain ingredients that have been irradiated (e.g., spices) be labeled if the food itself has not been irradiated, nor do we require labeling of irradiated food served in restaurants.
Great, the FDA can not guarantee the safety of food products with or without radiation, but now seafood is more radioactive. This move might be to hide the fact that Fukushima radiation is more prevalent in the food supply than the United States government would like to admit. Radiating seafood can be used to mask the fact that people are finding high levels of radiation in their sushi. 

Publicly radiate seafood for safety. Radiation readings cannot be traced to Japan.  Problem solved. 

Still one has to wonder if in the United Nation's Codex Alimentarius of food dictatorship and nutrient destruction, if there isn't a chapter called: Do You Like Radiation with your Mercury Poisoning?

The history of Codex Alimentarius (Food Code) began protecting the health of consumers but then the United Nations turned over control to the very corporations that are responsible for creating unhealthy food crises for money making opportunities:
In 2002, the FAO and WHO had serious concerns about the direction of Codex and hired an external consultant to determine its performance since 1962 and to designate which direction to take the trade organization [2]. The consultant concluded that Codex should be immediately scrapped and eliminated. It was at this time that big industry realized the full monetary potential of this organization and exerted its powerful influence. The updated outcome was a toned down report asking Codex to address 20 various concerns within the organization.

Since 2002, the Codex Alimentarius Commission has covertly surrendered its role as an international public health and consumer protection organization. Under the helm of big industry, the sole surreptitious purpose of the new codex is to increase profits for the global corporate juggernauts while controlling the world through food. The implicit understanding of their philosophy is that if you control food, you control the world.

For more information, please read: Dr. Gregory Damato's: Codex Alimentarius: Population Control Under the Guise of Consumer Protection. It's a real eyeopener. It's the TPP of corporate food control.
