Poor labeling of food in Australia leaves people stumped to know its origin.

Paul Waldon Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA, 29 Jan 18,  

The NRC and DOE and their plans to resurrect failed policies to deregulate large amounts of radioactive materials (14,00+ tonnes), and allow them into the general consumer market place.The last time they tried this, with a policy called “Below Regulatory Concern.” Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) and other groups mounted a national campaign that tapped public outrage and led to the 1992 revocation of the policy by the the U.S. congress. It was reported that this recycled material would end up in your pot and pans, belt buckles, tins and every other consumer good.
Less than two years ago while on a shopping expedition I came across a item that was radioactive at a large local supermarket, without opening the can I couldn’t say if the food or the receptacle was the source of the high reading.
The promotion of a radioactive waste dump at Hawker or Kimba has already had a impact with the stigma, relationships and more. Anyone that would consider abandoning radioactive waste in a environment know for cereal crops or livestock which will find its way onto the kitchen table for the children or anyone else, is irresponsible and reckless.
