The European Union has decided to lift its restrictions on imports of some foods from 10 prefectures, such as rice grown in Fukushima — site of the country’s worst nuclear accident.

The partial lifting, decided by the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, will take effect Dec. 1. The other nine prefectures are Akita, Miyagi, Gunma, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Chiba, Iwate, Nagano and Yamagata.
