Relying on a chlorine wash in order to compensate for filthy, overcrowded and unhygienic conditions in US chicken factories where animal welfare is sidelined to keep costs down is not the same as eating a few salad leaves from the EU.

Yet the outcome is the same... food that is cheap and obviously safe to eat.

“Essentially, what we are concerned about is not just the chemical itself, but rather the risk that these treatments will be seen as the “easy fix” to clean up dirty meat. Let’s be clear – no chemical rinse will ever remove all bacteria from meat heavily contaminated as a result of poor hygiene.”

The European Food Safety Authority "considers that treatment with trisodium phosphate, acidified sodium chlorite, chlorine dioxide, or peroxyacid solutions, under the described conditions of use, would be of no safety concern” and the use of chemical substances in poultry is “unlikely to pose an immediate or acute health risk for consumers”.

Operation Fear / rampant protectionism.  The EFSA themselves have said it poses minimal risk.  

Meanwhile, toxic ingredients banned elsewhere like Blue FCF, Red 40, glyphosate, and atrazine are pumped into and onto products in the EU (mmm tasty), but to you that's OK because the EU tell you it's OK.  

By the way, the UK has been importing GM oilseed, soybeans, maize and much more for years, and the EU has approved hundreds of such products.  Similarly, all of the major UK supermarkets sell meat that contains agricultural antibiotics.  Maybe you grow your own food.  

The moral of the story is just because your favourite political tribe tells you something is safe or not, doesn't mean to say it is - that goes for both sides of the Atlantic.
