Cesium Level in Raw Milk in Southern Miyagi Is Rising

From Miyagi Prefecture's website, the result of measurement of radioactive cesium in raw milk collected at "Sennan Cooler Station" in Shiroishi City in southern Miyagi from March 25 till December 20, 2011:

November 22, 2011: 2 becquerels/kg
November 29, 2011: 4 becquerels/kg
December 6, 2011: 21 becquerels/kg
December 13, 2011: 14 becquerels/kg
December 20, 2011: 22 becquerels/kg

The raw milk from the area is mixed with other raw milk from other areas and regions and sold.

Why is it going up now? No idea. The safety standard for cattle feed is 300 becquerels/kg.
