The Becquerel Reindeer
This is a freezer of radioactive reindeer meat in a slaughterhouse in Swedish Lapland. In Sweden the maximum radiation allowed in meat is 300 becquerels per kilo. Meat from reindeer feeding on lichen contaminated with cesium-137 from the Chernobyl cloud was measuring as high as 16,000 becquerels per kilo. Slaughterhouse workers refer to the radioactive carcasses as « the becquerel reindeer ».
