TORONTO -- Canadian officials are implementing upgraded controls on Japanese food imports as fears mount that the country's ongoing nuclear crisis has contaminated its food supply.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced Wednesday that in addition to existing controls, milk products, fruits and vegetables from areas closest to the affected nuclear power plant will not be allowed entry to Canada without documents verifying their safety.

The move follows action in other countries. The United States says it is halting imports of Japanese dairy and produce from the region near the facility.
