Chlorinated chicken: Will Brexit lead to lower food standards?

This briefing paper from the UK’s Food Research Collaboration argues that accepting United States food safety and animal welfare standards as part of a post-Brexit trade deal would imply “significant risks to public health and a radical decline in food quality standards which would be unprecedented and unacceptable in the UK”. 

The report recommends that the UK government should make firm commitments that UK food standards will not be lowered as part of trade deals.
