Iranian MP Ali Iranpour has announced that red meat imported from Ukraine in recent months has been contaminated with radioactivity.

The report indicates that earlier, following reports that contaminated meat from Ukraine had been imported into the country, meat inspection officials announced that the products had not been distributed and had been rejected after tests revealed the contamination.

Khaneh Mellat reports, however, that Parliament’s agricultural commission has not been able to confirm that the products were duly tested and kept from entering the market.

Iranpour has been quoted as saying such contamination, even in a limited amount, can cause serious health problems for the public.
