THE USA is poised to impose sanctions worth millions of pounds on European food products after Brussels said it would not lift its import ban on hormone-treated beef.

European Commission officials said yesterday (Monday) they had postponed a decision on whether to lift the decade-old ban until next week.

That means Brussels will miss a deadline of 13 May, imposed by a World Trade Organisation ruling, to allow imports of US beef.

Peter Scher, US special trade negotiator, said there would be a “price to pay” if the European Union (EU) failed to comply with the deadline.

Washington maintains there is “essentially no safety difference” between eating regular beef and beef from animals treated with hormones.

It has already prepared a preliminary list of $900 million-worth (£554m) of EU food products which could be subject to 100% duties if the EU fails to take action.
