12 American Foods that are Banned in Other Countries*
By Amy Goodrich
Americans are slowly waking up to the sad fact that their food supply is packed with hazardous and toxic compounds.
Many of the American foods you may be eating on a daily basis are banned in other countries because they contain compounds that are known to cause inflammation, growth defects and cancer.
For some reason the U.S. government and FDA allows these toxic foods to end up in our supermarkets while other countries have taken them off the shelves.
- Pink Slime
Pink slime is a name used for processed low-grade beef trimmings and meat by-products. They use ammonium hydroxide in their processing, which is banned in many other countries outside the US.
This pink slime is often added to processed foods. Products can contain up to 15% without additional labelling.
Banned in: Canada, U.K., and E.U.
