A ban on fish and seafood imports from Japan, introduced on April 6 2011 in connection with the accident at the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant, will remain in effect in full, the federal veterinary and phytosanitary oversight service Rosselkhoznadzor has reported.
It said the ban applies to 242 companies located in eight prefectures of Japan. The ban remains in effect despite Japanese officials’ repeated requests to lift it,” Rosselkhoznadzor said. This decision is based on the monitoring, run by Russian services, and by international and foreign organizations.
Five hundred and twenty-four Japanese companies that process fish from areas not contaminated after the accident have the right to export fish, fish products and seafood.
Products arriving from these companies are rigorously controlled for radiation, Rosselkhoznadzor said.
Kyodo News: S. Korea bans all fishery products from 8 Japan prefectures — Gov’t: Unclear how Fukushima incident will progress in future
South Korea announced Friday it has placed an import ban on all fisheries products from 8 Japanese prefectures, including Fukushima. The decision was made Friday following a meeting between government agencies chaired by Prime Minister Chung Hong Won and the ruling party. […]
The move comes as a widespread radiation scare in South Korea is leading to a sharp drop in the consumption of fisheries products. “The measure comes as our people’s concerns are growing over the fact that hundreds of tons of radiation contaminated water are leaked daily from the site of Japan’s nuclear accident in Fukushima,” the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries said in a press release. “The measure also comes as the government concluded that it is unclear how the incident in Japan will progress in the future and that the information the Japanese government has provided so far is not enough to predict future developments.” […]
“Imports of all fishery products from eight prefectures surrounding Japan’s Fukushima, which is seriously polluted and damaged by radiation, will be banned,” the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries said […] The eight prefectures include Fukushima, Ibaraki, Gunma, Miyagi, Iwate, Tochigi, Chiba and Aomori.

And many examples of food being grown in hotzones, then packed and/or labeled as produce of another prefecture:
Rice grown in Miyagi contains more than double legal limit of radioactive cesium
Fukushima cucumbers relabeled and sold in Tokyo
More than 10,000 cesium pork were distributed to all over in Japan. http://www.dianuke.org/fukushima-diary-mochizuki-cheshire-iori-2607/
