20 American Foods That Are Banned in Other Countries

It seems like every day, something new is coming out that will probably kill us. One of the most terrifying was the thought that roasted coffee can cause cancer. Yikes! I mean, that doesn’t stop us Americans from drinking an average of 2.1 cups per day. In fact, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t drinking from a cup of coffee right now. Thankfully, we don’t see a coffee ban any time soon. After all, it would cause massive riots.

However, there are some foods that we eat that are banned – not in the U.S., but in other countries. America has notoriously low standards for food, and we constantly hear about it on the news. Anyone that keeps up-to-date with this stuff may remember the Subway scare where their bread supposedly contained a material that was used to make yoga mats. Funny enough, that chemical is banned in the European Union for causing all sorts of issues on people.

That isn’t the only chemical that’s banned elsewhere, but we eat all the time. Here are 20 foods that Americans eat on a daily basis that may be killing us. You won’t be able to find these items in the EU for that very reason!
