That's funny. When I was living in the UK, not so long ago, eating beef on
the bone was prohibited because of the danger of Mad Cow disease and most
lamb and mutton was imported from NZ because of the presence of scrapie in
local flocks. There was also Frankenfood legislation pending against ANY
genetically modified crops. It seems that EU consumers are easily spooked
and governments are extremely protective of local farmers.

wasn't all that long ago that I read headlines about

the EU refusing importation of US meat
