In line with ongoing Government of Canada radiation surveillance and monitoring activities across Canada, last week the Canadian Food Inspection Agency conducted sampling and testing of domestic milk from British Columbia to verify that milk remains safe for consumption. The BC Dairy industry supported this testing of milk for radiation to ensure that consumer safety was not compromised. The result of this testing confirms that BC milk is safe to drink.

 Canadian consumer safety is the highest priority for dairy farmers and dairy food companies. The BC dairy industry continues to work closely with federal and provincial government agencies to ensure a safe milk supply. In the unlikely event action is needed, we can assure you that our industry will work diligently to ensure consumer safety is not compromised.

    Results from independent groups show that BC milk is safe. The CFIA reported the results of their testing on their website (http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/fssa/imp/radrese.shtml). To quote, "...all products were below Health Canada action levels for pertinent radionuclides." Details on the action levels are also posted (http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/pubs/contaminants/emergency-urgence/action-intervention-eng.php). In addition to the testing done by CFIA, TRIUMF has also tested local 1% milk and reports no detectable Iodine-131 at the low-level precision measurements used (http://www.triumf.ca/headlines/current-events/triumf-measures-local-radioactivity-no-health-risks-found). less
  • Thank you for keeping us up to date on this and keeping up safe and informed. I have two young children and this is of the upmost importance. Thank you.

    No specific numbers published again. Even low levels of radiation in food can cause sever health problems. There is a big difference between external (background) radiation, and radiation from particles collected in human body. Canadian government commits crime against Canadians. Don't buy BC milk, it is not safe now especially for children. less
