(ABC NEWS) — Experts say there’s no need for worry–at least for now.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it will require seafood imported from Japan to be checked for radiation before it enters the food supply. But even with the new screenings, no one in the U.S. government is saying “stop eating tuna.”

“Other food products from this area, including seafood, although not subject to the Import Alert, will be diverted for testing by FDA before they can enter the food supply,” the FDA said in a prepared statement. “FDA will also be monitoring and testing food products, including seafood, from other areas of Japan as appropriate.”
