Don't Panic!

In an effort to mitigate the effects of any fallout from Japan's nuclear reactors, citizens in China have politely bought all availible salt in local stores. (While salt does contain iodine, the amounts are so small that it would not block radiation from reaching ones thyroid.)
Now news sources are reporting that people want their money back after buying regular table salt at up to six times it's normal cost.
