The “Special Inquiry into Counterfeit, Fraudulent, and Suspect Items in Operating Nuclear Power Plants,” by NRC Inspector General Robert Feitel, concluded that “counterfeit, fraudulent, and suspect items” (CFSI) believed to be present in U.S. reactors “present nuclear safety and security concerns that could have serious consequences for nuclear power plant equipment required to perform a safety function.” An inquiry report accompanied the IG’s audit.
The investigation was unable to pinpoint specific safety hazards because of insufficient information reported by reactor operators and collected by the NRC.
Interesting read. Doesn’t inspire confidence in normal government operations. Might help you pick out a new place to live, though.
There are alternatives. Just ask your Congress-critter.
