I know we were asked by someone who had a part from Japan installed in their car if we could check it out here... our RAM supervisor found nothing, of course, but it put the person's mind at ease.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Radiation survey of Japanese automobiles after Fukushima
I am wondering if anyone else has been asked to perform radiation survey on automobiles from Japan in relation to the Fukushima-Daiichi event? I have heard of a few people who were approached by car dealerships to perform radiation survey a few years ago (and find nothing) and I was recently asked the same. I would like to find out of this phenomena is widespread and continuing. Also, if anyone knows of anything published to this effect, I would be interested in reading about it.
