Here the deal folks, radiation from Fukushima is in the food chain in the West Coast which means you are probably eating it in your milk, fruit and vegetables. Keep in mind that California is having big budget issues so my guess is that they don't want to damage the economy and make matters worse. Also, since when does anyone put public health over $$$$. Do the research-Google  'cesium in California food 2012' and decide for your self-and your family.

"We also have samples that indicate in Southern California, we have one sample that also picked up cesium in cedar pollen [...] We did have someone send us cedar samples that did indicate in South California that we had picked up both cesium-137 and cesium-134. When you find them both together that’s a Fukushima signature."

Strawberries, mushrooms with Cesium-137 found in Northern California; 5 of 6 items in food chain sampling test have radioactive particles


Radio: Cesium all the way down US West Coast; Pine needles from So. California; Ground samples from Vancouver and Oregon — Not a lot, my biggest concern is bioaccumulation as it works up food chain (AUDIO)

Radioactive Iodine from Fukushima Found in California Kelp

Radiation detectable in seafood/crops from cesium 134

The testing can determine if there is recent exposure, bioabsorption of cesium 134, as I understand it Yes the iodine would be gone but tissue would still probably have cesium in it.
The Radiation and Public Health Project tested lobsters from Long Island Sound and found Lobsters were FULL of strontium 90 (at levels equivalent to the amounts found children's teeth at Chernobyl) in their SOFT tissues.
Polar bears and seals are sick and dying in the arctic from hair loss and skin lesions.
Why is there no new testing by BRAWM???
Testing for cesium 134 and strontium 90 would answer some of these questions. YES there was already cesium 137 in the food chain from previous years, but cesium 134 (unless I am reversing the two) can only be recent.

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Kelp off Southern California was contaminated with short-lived radioisotopes a month after Japan’s Fukushima accident, a sign that the spilled radiation reached the state’s urban coastline, according to a new scientific study.
Scientists from California State University, Long Beach tested giant kelp collected in the ocean off Orange County and other locations after the March, 2011 accident, and detected radioactive iodine, which was released from the damaged nuclear reactor.
