Alas, this statement casts serious doubt on her credibility…

It's an ignorant statement, symptomatic of someone who is operating out of irrational fear rather than solid knowledge about radiation.
This is not to say that it's not possible that there's a genuine problem here with radioactively-contaminated seafood, but I would certainly not assume that to be the case based on this article. This reads more like Chicken Little.
Here, by the way, are some measurements I took of ambient radiation levels in Sacramento around the time of the Fukushima mishap. I had read somewhere that there was some terrible cloud of radiation that was supposed to hit us the following day, so I took one measurement before this “cloud” was supposed to arrive, and several afterward. There was, indeed, an increase in radiation, but nothing dangerous. It seems this part of Sacramento has a lower than average ambient radiation level (10 µS/day is average), and even with the increase presumed to be from Fukushima, my part of Sacramento was still well below that level.
