8 out of 10 Brits would rather keep British food standards than get a trade deal with the United States but International Trade secretary Liam Fox refuses to rule out the future import of chlorinated chicken and hormone-fed beef. 

The National Farmers Union says, "It is imperative that any future trade deals, including a possible deal with the US, do not allow the imports of food produced to lower standards than those required of British farmers"

But politicians like Jacob Rees Mogg have called for lowering UK standards to get trade deals with other countries. 

If you're one of the millions of Brits who don't think a US trade deal is worth lowering our standards for, tell Liam Fox today:

To Liam Fox MP - 

I do not accept that lowering food standards is a price worth paying for a trade deal with the United States of America. 

Allowing cheap import of US products into the UK threatens our animal welfare and our local farmers.

I call upon you to protect British food standards and to rule out US produce that does not meet those standards.

Make this clear today.

    Please don’t sacrifice years of food quality improvements for a trade deal with the Americans.

    I’ve worked as a vet when cattle were allowed to be treated with hormones in the 80’s We don’t want to go backwards. It shows how bad American hygiene practices are when they need to wash the meat in chlorine!

    I don’t imagine the Tory Toffs will be eating chlorinated chicken, nor hormone fed beef…

    In any given year, around fifteen percent of Americans suffer from food poisoning. Don’t let that happen here.

    I am appalled that hard one European standards both in animal welfare and human health are threatened with being ditched post-Brexit.
