EU CHIEFS have tried reassure the public a new trade deal with the US will not lead to hormone-injected beef and bleach-soaked chicken hitting freezer aisles.

United States lobbyists are trying to use negotiations over the new "Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership" with the EU to get the continent-wide ban on the products lifted.

American cattle is injected with growth hormones prior to slaughter, something which is banned in the EU.

Sale of US poultry meat is restricted in the EU as the conditions in which the animals are kept do not reach the organisation's sanitary criteria.

Once chickens in the US are slaughtered, they are dipped in a bleaching solution which kills all germs and bacteria.

Last year, the US Poultry Group said relaxing the ban, which has been in force since 1997, would be worth more than £300million to its members.

However, the EU's chief negotiator in the free trade talks, Ignacio Garcia Bercero, said: "What is non-negotiable are food safety standards. Hormones are prohibited, there is a strict regime of genetically modified organisms and this is not going to go away."

He added the EU's strict regime for control of chemical substances would also not be altered, as "mutual recognition" of safety standards only applies when the standards are "compatible."

The EU also has offensive interests in the talks. How will they get them through if they are not going to give in on any of the red lines?

Pia Eberhardt, from Corporate Europe Observatory

One monitoring organisation has raised concerns over the role of American lobbyists in the talks.

Pia Eberhardt, from Corporate Europe Observatory, told the EUObserver website: "We know the corporate wishlists for the talks, which mention all the points that the [European] Commission is now calling red lines - from chlorinated chicken to GMOs [Genetically Modified Organisms]

She added: "The EU also has offensive interests in the talks. How will they get them through if they are not going to give in on any of the red lines? These are two-way negotiations, not a one way street."

In a statement, the US Poultry Group said the US trade ambassador Ron Kirk, who leads the negotiations on the American side, had "listened to and accepted recommendations that agriculture and unwarranted non-tariff barriers, especially non-science based sanitary and phytosanitary provisions, be an important part of the negotiations and that any final trade agreement successfully address these issues.”
