"Never trust a Fox in your hen coop," Barry Gardiner, Labour's shadow trade secretary sallied after British trade secretary Liam Fox accused the country’s media of being "obsessed" with chlorine-washed chicken being imported from U.S. farms. Fox was addressing the rampant fears that Britain would enter into a potential trade deal with America post-Brexit; a relationship that would accommodate U.S. poultry farmers to sell their meat in Britain. According to the trade secretary, his official trip to Washington focused on lengthy trade negotiations, of which potentially contaminated chickens played only a small role.
Despite the evidence that suggests these unnatural procedures, the U.S. poultry industry insist that our chickens are healthy and fit for consumption. Jim Sumner, who is the President of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Export Council, said that chlorine is only used to make chicken "extra safe." The chemical wash does not harm the consumers.
