No radiation levels of concern detected in U.S.: government

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. government on Friday said that "miniscule" amounts of radiation were detected in Sacramento, California, but that no radiation levels of concern have been uncovered in United States.

The Environmental Protection Agency and the Energy Department said the radiation detected in Sacramento was consistent with a release from Japan's damaged nuclear facility.
