You may never have heard of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, (TPP) but the impact of the trade deal on the safety of America’s food could be significant. The potential deal between the United States and Pacific Rim nations has been so closely guarded that Congress has reportedly been able to garner only a few details about the agreement. If the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement is approved, Americans may soon be dining on Asian chicken, seafood and beef which do not even come close to achieving United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards. The federal agency would reportedly be powerless to ban imports based upon a lack of food safety attributes. That’s because under the trade deal, countries would be bound by the deal’s language instead of their own regulations.
