PEOPLE worried about eating chlorinated chicken have been advised to read the label on any chickens that they buy.
Experts said that a free trade agreement with the US may lead to chlorine-washed chicken in UK supermarkets but the agreement would not mean you will be force fed the chickens by the police.
Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “Lots of frozen chlorinated chickens will come over from America in a big ship. A big lorry will then take the frozen chickens to a big supermarket.
“This is where you come in.”
He added: “When you pick up the chicken have a look at the label. If it says ‘made in America’ you can react in two ways. You could say ‘oh lovely, chlorinated chicken’ or you could say ‘I don’t want to eat chlorinated chicken’.
“Then you either buy the chicken or spend the money on chocolate, which is what you really want to do anyway.”
