Canon U.S.A. Update on Import of Products from Japan

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., March 24, 2011 - We continue to monitor and analyze the recovery and rebuilding efforts in the areas impacted by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We are carefully assessing the situation, and its impact on production and operations.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced that it is carefully monitoring and assessing the potential for radiological contamination. It is using several types of radiation detection equipment in air and sea ports, mail facilities, and elsewhere to scan cargo. CBP notes that it uses radiation equipment and operational protocols to resolve any safety risks. More information is available at

We will post updates regarding safety, recovery and rebuilding efforts, as necessary.

We thank everyone for their continued concern and support.
