Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
It's not irrelevant, it proves the point I'm making. There were calls to ban Brazilian chicken imports in 2017 due to quality fears. Only certain Brazilian meat plants were affected in 2018, instead of a complete ban, yet in spite of all this salmonella infected chicken is still arriving in the EU. Where is the ban now? Do you not see the double standards? Do you not see that the EU is only banning chlorine washed chicken to protect EU farmers? Do you not see that whilst people are pulling their hair out over the prospect of chlorine washed chicken, there is already substandard meat arriving in the EU?
Yes, but the substandard meat was, when detected, stopped at the border, as all the links seem to state.

Of course it can "arrive" but whether it's allowed through is another thing. Not sure why you're not getting this.

Yes, some stuff got through but that doesn't mean it complies with the standards or is subject to different standards, it just means it wasn't detected.

Sneaking dodgy gear over the border in the hopes of being undetected isn't a new thing, you know.
