FDA approves food from cloned animals


Posted by Larissa

Rick Weiss at the Washington Post wrote an article today about the FDA approving food from cloned animals. My jaw dropped when I read about this, but it should have been expected. Did you see the approval coming?

"A long-awaited final report from the Food and Drug Administration concludes that foods from healthy cloned animals and their offspring are as safe as those from ordinary animals, effectively removing the last U.S. regulatory barrier to the marketing of meat and milk from cloned cattle, pigs and goats.

The 968-page "final risk assessment," not yet released but obtained by The Washington Post, finds no evidence to support opponents' concerns that food from clones may harbor hidden risks."

I don't know about you, but I don't care what the FDA concludes; I'm not buying it!
