Secret Trade Agreements Threaten to Undo Our Last Shreds of Food Safety
Door Katherine Paul en Ronnie Cummins, Alternet, 13 juni 2013

You could soon be eating imported seafood, beef or chicken products that don’t meet even basic U.S. food safety standards.

[...] Negotiations[...] are taking place behind closed doors, with input allowed almost exclusively from the corporations and industry trade groups that stand to benefit the most.

[...] Designed to grease the wheels of world commerce, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would force the U.S. and other participating countries to “harmonize” food safety standards. That means all countries that sign on to the agreement would be required to abide by the lowest common denominator standards of all participating governments.
