That's pretty much the gist of it. Oh, and here's the E.U's response to Liam Fox: I finds this brouhaha on "unsafe to cook and eat" chlorine-washed chicken to be hilarious, since this absurd argument for animal welfare masquerading as food safety standards will always be lumped in with a bunch of other myths, such as "chickens are injected with steroids and fed with growth hormones". All of which are patently untrue (it is completely safe to wash chicken with chlorine, there is no such thing as steroids for chicken, and feeding chicken hormones is quite illegal under Federal laws), but last I heard somewhere around 80% of people randomly surveyed actually believe to be real. What people COULD rightfully be worried about is the ultra-low dose of antibiotics that many U.S chicken farmers administers legally to keep their chicken from ever getting sick, because that will inevitably leads to superbugs becoming drugs-resistance down the road just by mere evolution. Then again, that precautionary practice has been significantly reduced of late, while us humans continue to overuse antibiotics in much higher dosage ourselves whenever we get a sniffle.
