Chloropropanols



 
Why does the United States not care about what the people in this country eat?  Do they care that some of the foods in stores can be dangerous if eaten? Are they more worried about the money that the companies that produce these types of foods give them every year to let them do what they want?
Chloropropanols are a family of drugs commonly found in Asian food sauces like black bean, soy, and oyster sauce. There are two specific substances within this category that are known carcinogens and that are banned in Canada and the UK: 3-MCPD and 1, 3 DCP. They are not banned in the United States, although the FDA has recommended that foreign products containing these materials be banned from entering the U.S.
