      *Does Nordic Naturals source fish from areas at risk of radiation exposure as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant incident?
      No. Nordic Naturals sources sardines and anchovies off the coast of Peru in the South Pacific Ocean, and Arctic cod (Skrei) from the Norwegian Sea in the North Atlantic. Consistent monitoring and testing have determined that there is no risk of radiation in either of these fishing areas.

As a reflection of our commitment to product safety, we have proactively tested our fish oil raw materials for any signs of radiation contamination since the Fukushima incident in March 2011, and have never had a detectable result. We have also continued to monitor and assess any potential contamination, and remain confident that our products are not at risk.

As always, we use several proprietary steps in processing our oils at our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant that result in products that surpass the strictest international standards for purity and freshness.

We will continue to ensure that all of our fish oil products comply with the US FDA guidelines (CPG 7119.14 Sec. 560.750 Guidance Levels for Radionuclides in Domestic and Imported Foods). Test results are listed on applicable Certificates of Analysis.
