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

The bill trying to ban the phosphates needed at least 376 to pass, however it was turned down by a difference of only three votes. The votes came in at 373 against the ban, 272 for and 30 abstentions.

The European Union's legislature was moving to ban the phosphates citing health concerns based on studies that linked phosphates to cardiovascular disease.

Doner kabab vendors had been patiently awaiting the decision, and say that the additives are vital in making the processed meat to keep it soft and juicy.
