Depends totally on which way the winds are blowing. The plants are 140km away, which is less than the distance between Chernobyl and Belarus, yet Belarus was badly affected by fallout - as (to a much lesser extent) was Sweden, and the UK (both thousands of miles away) in terms of sheep etc.

Besides, it sounds like the product of an over-active marketing and H&S dept to me.
