Why does a hydrogen bomb produce significant radioactive fall-out?

A hydrogen bomb operates with a nuclear reaction that produces radioactive products?

  • Physics check -

    Well, the fusion reaction of the bomb itself does not. However a hydrogen bomb is likely to be detonated by a fission reaction which may well do so.
