We live in the EU, so no chlorinated chicken CC for us.It's not fair.If you don't like it, stop eating chicken.
Ummm, sadly lettuce and sprouts and other salad ingredients are routinely recalled for making people ill from salmonella as well as e. coli. Sorry!Now I got it! The nice but misguided lady I was talking to got her cue from Liam Fox. OMG. The media is almighty.
Liam Fox has defended the controversial practice of disinfecting chicken with chlorine, reopening a cabinet rift over whether post-Brexit food standards should be lowered to facilitate a trade deal with the US.
“There are no health reasons why you couldn’t eat chickens that have been washed in chlorinated water,” the trade secretary told MPs when asked whether there was anything wrong with the process. “Most of the salads in our supermarkets are rinsed in chlorinated water,” he said.
Corollary: Salads do not contain SALMONELLA.
It seems to be generally agreed that Labour was lying about this document. I only got about 20% of the way through and it seemed quite encouraging if anything.One of the interesting things about that unredacted document, the one all the fuss is about, is the difference between the US and EU approaches to, well, everything. It seems that the difference between the legal systems also applies to business. I.e. in the US anything goes unless it is forbidden. In the EU the opposite is true. You can't do anything unless some bureaucrat has given it the OK. I know which I prefer!
