I don't mean to sound paranoid, but I am a bit concerned about contamination from the Fukushima disaster affecting produce and seeds from the North American West Coast. In the past, I have ordered a majority of my seeds from producers there, but now I'm wary. Anybody have some good, objective info on this matter?

I don't have a scientific basis for this, jmo. I am certain that some drift will eventually hit the us mainland. IDK how you can slow that down, if at all. While I would not purchase goods from the actual devistation site, seed on the west coast should be fine. My concerns are more of a local kind. Are they gmos, have they been treated, those kinds of questions.

I don't have any scienctific knowledge either, but the plant is still putting off radio active materials. My main concern would be what is harvested from the sea. I know I've read a couple of articles that some seafoods are contamined. Not sure how far out that extends but I sure wouldn't buy any fish or other seafoods from Japan!
