Safety stickers to reassure car customers over Japan radiation

Safety stickers will be placed on Nissan cars imported from Japan after undergoing radiation checks in an effort to reassure customers of their safety.

Japan is still attempting to overcome the 8.9-magnitude earthquake that struck its north-east coast last month. The quake triggered a massive tsunami, which devastated towns and villages, leaving thousands dead and a serious humanitarian crisis.

The giant wave caused a series of explosions at the Fukushima nuclear power plant and engineers have been racing to cool and control a set of reactors in an effort to stave off meltdown.

Nissan Motor Company's Taiwanese division will now check radiation levels on all imported cars and place safety stickers on them so customers know the vehicles are safe.

The firm said in a statement that parts will be checked for radiation in three stages; before shipment to Taiwan, at the port of arrival and after assembly, Reuters reported.

Stickers reading "radiation check OK" will be placed on the lower right corner of car windscreens if they have levels lower than the 0.2 permitted millisieverts. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800483861-ADNFCR
