    What about British soft cheeses? Or is it only non-British ones?



    Maybe we should just stick to

    "Don't eat mould-ripened soft cheese (cheeses with a white rind) such as brie and camembert. This includes mould-ripened soft goats' cheese, such as chèvre. These cheeses are only safe to eat in pregnancy if they've been cooked."

    "Soft blue cheeses
    You should also avoid soft blue-veined cheeses such as danish blue, gorgonzola and roquefort. Soft blue cheeses are only safe to eat in pregnancy if they've been cooked.
    It's advised pregnant women avoid some soft cheeses because they're less acidic than hard cheeses and contain more moisture, which means they can be an ideal environment for harmful bacteria, such as listeria, to grow in.
    Although infection with listeria (listeriosis) is rare, it's important to take special precautions in pregnancy – even a mild form of the illness in a pregnant woman can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth or severe illness in a newborn baby."

    List of goat milk cheeses - Wikipedia
    In the UK 6 cases of Listeria per year

    In the US 1600 cases of Listeria per year

    and not to mention 1.2 million cases of salmonella in the US

    They're not banned as I've bought them in the USA although they're called Kinder Joy and are packed slightly differently

    You’ve used the same spelling several times, so either you’re copying it from a source that has spelling mistakes, or something else.

    Can your source tell you how much chicken comes from Brazil and how much gets sent back?
    To the average Brazilian, it's always been Brasil. Hope that didn't confuse you...

    I have no idea. Scoots was asserting that it'd be mad to import chicken from such a faraway place as the US, and I was saying that a huge amount of the EU's (including the UK's) chicken already comes from Brasil and Thailand, i.e. faraway. This was the entirety of the point I was trying to make. EDIT: Apparently very poorly.

    I was wrong to suggest that food standards in Brasil and Thailand are worse than the US or Europe, as has already been pointed out.

    You're the one who mentioned it.
