- TL;DR Summary
- Hi, my husband brought home a large freezer bag of peices of blue fin tuna that his friend caught off the coast of Southern California. I read online that the blue fin tuna that is in Southern California migrate here from Japan and have cesium 134 and cesium 137 in them among other things. I’m worried there is radiation in it, we have 3 young children and a baby, he put it in our freezer. Is there radiation exposure to my kids and contamination to the freezer or my hands from touching it?
I’m worried because my husband brought home a freezer bag size of blue fin tuna that his friend caught off of the Southern California coast, he cut some up and gave it to my husband. My husband put it in our kitchen freezer, I’m worried there’s radiation being emitted such as cesium 134 or cesium 137, since I read the blue fin tuna migrates from Japan to the West Coast of the US. Also we have a nuclear power plant(San Onofre) that is near where my husbands friend caught the tuna, they regularly release radioactive materials into the ocean. I have 3 very young children and a 1 year old baby so I’m worried. My husband won’t let me throw it away. Also I touched it to move it in the freezer so now worried my hands have radioactive contamination or became radioactive, also my freezer is radioactive now. Worried my kids are exposed to this radiation...
