TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan on Friday partially lifted its ban on cattle shipments from Miyagi prefecture but kept its ban on beef from Fukushima after excessive levels of radioactive cesium were found, underscoring worries about food safety following the world's worst nuclear crisis in 25 years.

Concerns have grown over the safety of food supplies after a March 11 earthquake and tsunami crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, spreading radiation over a large swathe of northern and eastern Japan. Excessive levels of radiation have been found in vegetables, tea, milk, seafood and water.
