Growing fears of radioactive contamination from the massive failure of a Japanese nuclear power facility is causing global concerns that also touches Indonesia.

The Garuda Indonesia Maintenance Facility has issued a statement published in certifying that all their aircraft remain free of any nuclear contamination. Faud Abdullah representing Garuda told the press, "the public does not need to worry because all Garuda's aircraft are inspected before take-off for radiation and, until now, our fleet remains contamination-free."

Another Garuda spokesman, Bambang Prakoso, confirmed all airlines flying in Indonesia, including Garuda, have taken anticipative steps in the face of any possible radiation issues. "Actually, there are other forms of radiation beyond nuclear. Cellular telephones, which we all use, also have radiation. Only, their level of radiation is at very low levels," explained Bambang.

Both Faud and Bambang called on the public using Indonesian aircraft not to worry about radiation as the situation is under stringent supervision.

Food Safety

Despite the relatively minimal amounts of Japanese food products imported to Bali, public concern has prompted calls for "radiation-free" certification from the government for all food and drink products from Japan sold in Indonesia.

Gusti Ayi Adhi Ayapatni, the head of the Bali Office for the Supervision of Food and Drugs (BBPOM), told the press that his office will continue to be vigilant in its supervisory role to ensure Japanese imports do not put Indonesian consumers at risk. He said that all Japanese food products imported since March 11, 2011, are now required to have radiation-free certification.
