A fruit and vegetable wholesaler has been repackaging and relabeling cucumbers grown in Fukushima to disguise their origin, authorities said Saturday.
Wholesaler Daikanebunki allegedly repackaged and sold 358 boxes of cucumbers grown in Fukushima. The cucumbers were labeled as having been grown in Yamagata and Iwate prefectures, NTV reported.
Authorities on Friday ordered the wholesaler to abide by Japanese law when labeling goods and products in the future. They also claim that this is the first reported case of Fukushima goods being relabeled and sold in the capital.© Japan Today
