European parliament votes in favor of Turkish doner kabab

That advantage for producers prompted the European Commission, the 28-nation EU's regulatory arm, to propose an end to the bloc's ban on phosphates in kebab meat.

Europe's parliament voted with a very slight difference against banning phosphates used to make doner kababs.

The critics in the Strasbourg, France-based EU Parliament came up three votes short of the absolute majority needed to prevent the looser regulation, mustering 373 votes. It added there was no health risk.

The doner could have been a goner, with its salad days a thing of the past, had the crunch vote over whether to allow phosphates to be used in frozen kebab meat gone the other way. "You're welcome", said the Christian Democrat EPP group, which argued for keeping the phosphates in since it claims there is no proof of negative health effects.

This evening (Wednesday), the European Parliament rejected a legislation proposal that sparked outrage in Europe, which suggested the ban of the popular street food known as the doner kebab.

'They are looking for ways to hurt Turkish businesses here, ' said Baris Donmez, the owner of a 24-hour kebab bistro in Berlin's Mitte district.

"Unless they can show without a doubt that phosphate additives are not harmful, their use in all foods must be immediately reviewed by the Commission", said Bart Staes, the Belgian Greens lawmaker behind the motion.

The committee wanted to delay permission for phosphates in kebabs until the European Food Safety Authority completes a study into the risks of their use.

The European Commission has said the use of phosphates in frozen kebab meat is necessary to protect the binding in the meat during roasting and thawing.

However, following a full vote of Parliament that position was not endorsed.
