What Foods Are Banned in Europe but Not Banned in the U.S.?

The New York Times and author Roni Caryn Rabin give you an insight on what foods are banned in Europe, but not in the U.S.  Here is what they have to say….

“The European Union prohibits or severely restricts many food additives that have been linked to cancer that are still used in American-made bread, cookies, soft drinks and other processed foods. Europe also bars the use of several drugs that are used in farm animals in the United States, and many European countries limit the cultivation and import of genetically modified foods.

“In some cases, food-processing companies will reformulate a food product for sale in Europe” but continue to sell the product with the additives in the United States, said Lisa Y. Lefferts, senior scientist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a food safety advocacy organization.”
