gaPeach, I think they were talking about residual radiation in a lot of those places, and not necessarily bits of the substance itself. However, I wasn't sure whether the teapot had actual bits, or what. It was confusing and they really should have been more specific.
They said that the last time the Russian guy who handled the stuff was seen publicly, he had lost all his hair. For me, this was a strong indicator that he probably died soon after that sighting.
Yeah, any time they showed anyone sitting at a table and consuming anything, I thought *uh-oh*.
