Food Irradiation Facilities Pose Nuclear Security Threat

Most supermarket chains that previously carried irradiated ground beef purchased their meat from SureBeam, the newly bankrupt electron-beam irradiation company. Now, supermarkets are searching for a new supplier. But unlike the SureBeam technology, significant amounts of radioactive materials, including cobalt 60 and cesium 137, are used in the other food irradiation plants. As such, they raise serious security concerns---they are not adequately protected against theft, and can be used to make "dirty bombs." Now is the time to insist that stores keep irradiated foods off their shelves for good, thereby ending the persistent need for this dangerous nuclear technology.
