Are there any results you have NOT shared with us? Positive for radiocesium etc?
Frankly I am very discouraged that BRAWM has failed to report any recent results on food chain or soil and I wonder if they are simply NOT testing tomatoes, lettuce, berries, peppers, cucumbers etc at all OR that results have been found that BRAWM does not want (or the US government does not want) reported.
BRAWM KNOWS that the radiocesium is in the soil and is migrating through the food chain in variable doses and if there is acumulation in meat or other food sources (especially vegetables and fruit) that the ONLY way the public wil be informed and can act responsibly is IF BRAWM does the tests (since damn near no one else is doing so, including our EPA etc)
WHY doesn't BRAWM at LEAST do a small number of tests on outdoor grown tomatoes, peppers, cukes, melons, lettuce etc????
Or have ANY recent tests been done which have NOT been reported>
ASSUMING there is not going to be any contaminants from FUKUSHIMA in tomatoes and corn and peppers or lettuce when we KNOW that the radiocesium is IN THE SOIL and will be there for dozens of years is NOT SCIENTIFICALLY sound.
PLEASE do some more tests on our summer foods. PLEASE> Or is there some NONscientific reason that such results are not being reported or tests being done???

ONLY tests and results are scientific. It can't be that unreasonable for you to actually test for contaminants before reporting such contmination is not likely.
PLEASE do this for our peace of mind and health!
