The European Commission reached an agreement with the United States to allow the importation of more hormone-free US beef into the European market, allowing US farmers to import up to 35,000 tons of beef.

Hormone treated beef has been banned in Europe since the 1980’s and in 2002 the proponents of the ban were further strengthened when an EU scientific committee reviewed 17 studies and confirmed the use of hormones as a growth promoter raised the health risk to consumers.
