The Food and Drug Administration is poised to approve the sale of milk and meat from cloned animals and their offspring. If approved, cloned food would not be required to be labeled, eliminating consumers’ right to avoid eating these experimental foods. While no binding rules exist to prevent companies from selling meat or milk derived from cloned livestock, FDA has asked industry to voluntarily withhold the sale of their cloned products. FDA’s decision flies in
the face of massive public opposition to animal cloning, widespread scientiﬁc concerns about the risks of eating food from clones, and troubling animal cruelty and ethical concerns associated with the cloning process.
