During an inspection conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, it was found out that 80% of apples contain diphenylamine (DPA), which helps fruits stay fresher for longer so they can be exported all around the world. In Europe, DPA is considered to be a harmful substance that may cause cancer, which is why apples have been prohibited here since 2012.
4. Gelatin sweets
According to the European commission, gelatin sweets in small cups are extremely dangerous for children because they are a choking hazard. These sweets may also contain konjac, a fiber that swells when it comes into contact with moisture and may get stuck in the throat, making it impossible to give the Heimlich maneuver. This treat is banned in Europe, Australia, and other countries.
