- Some food is forbidden for health or animal welfare reasons
- For example, raw milk is acceptable in the UK, but forbidden in Canada
- Samosas are banned in Somalia and Kinder Surprise is forbidden in the US
The Kinder Surprise egg may seem an innocent treat, but in America, it’s not welcome – because it contains a ‘non-nutritive object’.
There are plenty of other seemingly innocuous foods deemed unfit for consumption, too.
Whether it’s for health reasons or animal welfare concerns, some groceries are stopped at the borders of certain countries.
For example, raw milk is acceptable in the UK, but forbidden in Canada because of the pathogens it contains.
Meanwhile in India, foie gras is illegal because they believe the process used to fatten the geese is inhumane.
