The mushrooms in Kanta-HÃ¤me (Finland) still contains too much radioactivity from the Chernobyl accident.
A spot check found a mushroom containing 1800 bequerel per kg. The European Commission's recommendation is 600 bequerel maximum quantity that may be present in natural products.
HÃ¤meenlinna health inspectors reported the study's findings on Tuesday. The investigation and its outcome is linked to the Food Safety Authority nationwide survey.
In PÃ¤ijÃ¤t-HÃ¤me has already received similar results.
To soak or boil the mushrooms lowers efficiently their radioactivity.
