‘First chlorine chicken, now HORMONE BEEF could be on the menu after Brexit’

First it was chlorine chicken – now hormone beef could be sold by British supermarkets if the UK agrees a post-Brexit trade deal with the USA, reports The Mirror.

Trade secretary Liam Fox faced “outrage and ridicule” over suggestions US negotiators would insist on Britain dropping a ban on importing chlorine washed chicken, it reports.

Now it has emerged that some of the men likely to lead Trump’s negotiation team see beef pumped up with chemicals as a deal-breaker, claims the newspaper.

American farmers feed cows on growth hormones to beef them up for the US market. But the practice is banned in the UK under EU rules.
