What we put into our bodies can have a huge impact on our overall health, so it’s no surprise that the governments are taking steps to make sure that food companies don’t put out harmful products with the capacity to compromise our diets and wellbeing. That being said, what is considered fit for consumption in some countries may not be considered so in others. Find out why these foods are banned in some countries:
12. Fugu Blowfish
This delicacy is illegal in the US as it contains toxins 1,200 times deadlier than cyanide. If not prepared properly, ingesting this fish could kill you.
11. Chewing gum
The countries of the west love chewing gum, there’s no denying it. However, gum is banned in Singapore – in fact, if you’re caught selling this item you’ll get fined $1,000!
A key ingredient of Haggis is livestock lungs, which have been banned from consumption by the department of agriculture. It’s therefore been illegal to serve this Scottish delicacy in the US since 1971.
I thought these sweet treats were harmless, and they kind of are. M&Ms are not sold in Sweden because their name is too similar to another “M” brand – Mondelez.
