While that is true, the unethical and the greedy will find ways to pull in less than prime quality into your area, in this country which I love, the fda releases medications far too soon then turn around and recall them. This tends to happen after millions in lawsuits or deaths or permanenst damage.
And that is what our Food Standards Agency is all about. However the laws have to be there in then first place for these agencies to act upon, and allow them to go in and remove these "less than prime quality" goods from the shelves.
I'm afraid that we may be "persuaded" to "loosen" some of these stricter laws in order to allow in US goods that are, at present, banned.
