    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Could powerful radiation from those reactors in Japan be tainting the fish you’re eating here at home? While the government says no, some restaurant owners aren’t taking any chances.

    At Le Bernardin in Manhattan fish is a way of life....“Well our fish is the freshest, of course, and it comes from the best,” owner Eric Ripert told CBS 2’s Kristin Thorne.

    But celebrity owner Ripert said he’s making sure of it. He’s testing every single piece of fish that comes through his door for radiation.....“Some of our clients started asking us some questions and they were concerned,” Ripert said.

    The concern is over radiation in the Pacific Ocean. A leak in one of the nuclear reactors in tsunami-ravaged Japan has spewed tons of radioactive material into the ocean. The Food & Drug Administration is testing all fish that comes into the United States and so far they say they haven’t found any contamination.

    Neither has Ripert.

    Smart idea, IMO. Better safe than sorry.

    Don't think of it as irradiated, think of it as pre-microwaved.

    I've got to be honest, I haven't eaten any seafood since the Oil spill, call me paranoid or whatever, but I don't think it'll be safe for quite a while.
