US Government Sequesters All Potassium Iodide

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

If you think that your survival kit is going to be of any value when the nuclear rain pours down in your neighborhood…think again!

 No Potassium Iodide (KI) is available anywhere because the US Government has sequestered all supplies.  Ask your friendly pharmicist next time you’re in Walgreens.  With no KI available when the ‘Hard Rain is Falling (B. Dylan) means you die while those who control the KI supply survive the exposure.

All the hype pertaining to collecting a survival kit is lost without the main ingredient required to survive nuclear fallout…Potassium Iodide.

Forget the gold and concentrate on lead as the new metal of choice…and don’t forget to pay your taxes!

      I work in a healthfood store in Atlanta and we are fully stocked on at least 5 different brands.

    • terry the censor

      What is the source of this outrageous lie? (Thanks for the fact-check, Crow.)

    • Anonymous

      somebody has shares in the production company?….

    • laserles

      Potassium Sulfate maybe…not Potassium Iodide Read the label and you will see the ingredient is not KI. But…if it is, please send an online link or the store name so as I can buy some right now and send it to my son in Guam.

    • Joseph Madre

      I know what I am reading dumbass… we have three cases of THIS,or.r_gc.r_pw.&ie=UTF-8&cid=7054777574735283253&sa=X&ei=wFmSTfPzBJGctwf1hc1s&ved=0CHwQ8wIwAQ#ps-sellers

      sitting on our shelves right now! as well as a couple boxes of Life Extensions version…. sheesh. what’s your source because they sure haven’t “sequestered” ours.

    • laserles

      WHY NOT CHECK YOUR References? Every one of the providers in your Google search are OUT…I checked this out weeks ago…You provide nothing but BLANKS…NO KI MAN…You can’t get! YOU Must Be The Government so back-off!

    • laserles

      If there is anyone who may have a reliable and immediate source of KI…please enlighten us here! NO CROWS PLEASE…

    • laserles

      After 2 weeks of searching for KI:

      Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, etc…all tell the same story:
      Sequestered by US Gov’t. (they might say the FDA)

      All online sources are OUT…with some stating delivery in 10 weeks (LOL). So where is this abundant, plentiful and necessary for survival supply of KI?

    • terry the censor

      Once again, commentors have to do the research for B4IN articles.

      It’s a lie to say the government has sequestered ALL the iodine. The government is buying up supplies but 1) so is the panicked public and 2) a lot of it is going to Japan, where it’s actually needed. And 3) the suppliers note other mundane factors.

      “U.S. Supplies of potassium iodide pills are taking a huge hit as people flock to the stores in search of protection from possible nuclear fallout.

      “A number of stores across the west coast are reporting that they are completely sold out. And a pharmacist at a Walgreen’s in California told us that they would not be getting anymore because the government has seized all supplies.

      “Fleming Pharmaceuticals, maker of ThyroShield a potassium iodide used in nuclear emergencies, said in a press release today that before the Japanese Quake the federal government already has stockpiled millions of doses. The company claims that some of the federal stockpile has expired and the remaining supply is set to expire over the year.”

      Local Group Collecting Iodine Pills To Send To Japan

      U.S. bases in Japan begin distributing potassium iodide pills

      But no worries, they’re making more.

    • laserles

      So what have you said that wasn’t already stated…No KI…PERIOD

      All your holy research?
      “What is the source of this outrageous lie? (Thanks for the fact-check, Crow.)”

      You spout idiocies and then break your arm patting yourself on the back after finally understand the truth…Why don’t YOU and CROW…are nothing but a stupid waste of time…coming up with no KI but a whole lot of babble.


    • laserles

      This is a MUST WATCH:,_destroys_ability_to_control_Japanese_reactor_shutdown_-_Mike_Rivero..html

      Don’t be mislead by the STUPID ONES! You don’t get KI…you DIE!

    • terry the censor


      You really support this kind of insane hysteria? Is there Japanese radiation poisoning Americans? If so, local and state governments can get all the iodine pills they want from the federal government (many have done so already as a matter of policy).

      This article is creating a false panic — it’s a shameless lie.

    • laserles

      terry the censor…you are stupid. 1st you call this article a Insane Hysteria?…A LIE?…you cannot get KI PERIOD. Or are you too stupid to believe it?

      No KI is available Americans when fallout from the poison radiation has already been found in rain water and pollutung the Pacific.

      My son is Navy – Guam…all I wanted to do was send him some for protection…he is 700 miles south of Japan.

      Your worthless and contrary interjections are stupid and baseless arguments for what?

      THE FACT IS: Americans can’t get KI…PERIOD

      So if you or your idiot crow friend have any…tell us now or Back-off!

      I may not have KI…but I’ve got plenty of bullets…

    • laserles

      Washington (CNN) — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is increasing its nationwide monitoring of radiation as two states reported very low levels of radiation in milk…

      If anyone knows of a readily available source of Potassium Iodide…Please post the link here.

      It appears from these comments: those who have the supplies of KI are the same scumbags telling the rest of us not to worry!

    • terry the censor

      > THE FACT IS: Americans can’t get KI…PERIOD

      That’s not true. As this very article and my links report, the US government has the pills. State and local authorities can request them from the feds if they don’t have a supply already.

      Laserlies, why do you pretend this not true? Why do you ignore this vital point?

    • laserles

      You are really stupid terry the censor! Perhaps English isn’t your 1st language…whatever your babbling is sickening.

      Look up the word SEQUESTER…because you have no clue what you are talking about. I called the State and Federal Gov’t who essentially told me to ‘piss-off’. They don’t have shit to give anyone because they have ‘sequestered it all’.

      If you have KI to give to the American Public…then give it or shut the FU_K up.

    • terry the censor


      > I called the State and Federal Gov’t who essentially told me to ‘piss-off’.

      Maybe they are not passing it out because there is not danger from fallout? Ever think of that?

      Besides, it’s obvious you have rabies — KI won’t help that.

    • laserles

      terry the censor…and you are a commie pinko fag!

    • laserles

      the Vitacoast source is now out too…US Gov’t is too busy raising acceptable radiation exposure limits…and after tonight there won’t be anybody left to ‘give out that Potassium Iodide they have SEQUESTERED’!

      Lucky for the rest of us…there are plenty of stupid people (like this terry-censor) who can’t fathom the ramifications of exposure to Iodide 131 as if spews from Japan…Right Now!

      Kiss your thyroids bye…bye…Got Pb?

    • terry the censor

      > terry the censor…and you are a commie pinko fag!

      I win!

      > after tonight there won’t be anybody left to ‘give out that Potassium Iodide they have SEQUESTERED’!

      More and more lies from Laserlies!

      In some parts of Canada and the US, authorities are passing out the pills to people who live near nuclear power plants — they just have to ask for them.

      The Ontario government is passing them out: “The so-called KI pills have long been available for free at several pharmacies to people who live or work within 10 kilometres of the Pickering and Darlington nuclear plants.”–radiation-fears-spark-run-on-iodide-pills

      The Delaware Emergency Management Agency is passing them out: “Potassium iodide, also called KI, will be given out free, but only to Delaware residents who live, work or own businesses within a 10-mile radius of Salem/Hope Creek Nuclear Generating Stations in New Jersey, said DEMA spokeswoman Rosanne Pack.”

      To be fair, Laserlies isn’t the only hysteric:

      “And the potassium iodide pills are being flogged for as much as $15 a pill on eBay, with a couple of hopeful sellers posting several unsealed boxes of the FDA-approved brands for $2,500.”

      “Britons call for iodine tablets in Japanese radiation panic”

      Thankfully, there are reasonable people sending pills where they’re actually NEEDED, not where delusional people desire them to feed their panic:

      “Some local stores have been shipping the pills to Japan, where they are needed.”

      I have to conclude that Laserlies, like most haters, just wants something to complain about, just wants someone to blame.


    • laserles

      Anyone read what this terry-the-senile blurts out? You can’t get KI because the Gov’ts are keeping it for themselves and theirs!

      News from Today (04.11.2011) after almost a month of deadly radiation leakage:

      Tokyo (CNN) — Japan’s government called for evacuations Monday from several towns beyond the danger zone already declared around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, warning that residents could receive high doses of radiation over the coming months.

      So go to the terry idiot’s websites and get your KI or NOT…before it’s TOO LATE!

      and be glad that idiots like this will soon be history cause they don;t need no KI!

      RIP Idiot!

    • terry the censor

      Laserlies, your prose is as confusing as usual. But since you are concerned about the health of others — a concern I share — I will ask for a clarification:

      Is your latest comment addressed to people who live in Japan, where there actualy are dangerous levels of radiation, or in North America and Canada, where there are not?
