FDA Declares Cloned Livestock Safe to Eat
December 30, 2006 3:16 PM
The recent decision by the FDA will only ignite a debate for years to come
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently made a
tentative conclusion that meat and milk from some cloned animals is safe for human consumption
The decision has paved the way for the United States to become the first nation that allows products from cloned animals to be sold in grocery stores.
After years of numerous delays, the FDA report found that there is not much of a difference in composition of food from cloned animals compared to normal animals. Even if the FDA's assessment is officially approved in 2007, consumers may not be able to products from cloned animals since the technology remains too costly to be widely used.
The decision on Thursday immediately drew comments from critics from across the nation.
Opponents to cloned food are aiming to throw Congressional pressure to delay the policy before it is finalized.
Consumer groups are gravely concerned over potential health issues that may arise in some of the cloned animals.
Some cloned animals may have weakened immune systems and will need more drugs to stay healthy, according to activists and critics.
Don't be surprised if you begin seeing some sort of "clone-free" labels on meat and dairy products from cloned animals.
Ben & Jerry's ice cream, for example, already mentions that its farmers do not use any sort of bovine growth hormone on its cows.
Many opponents are not necessarily against cloned food, but want to make sure consumers know exactly what they are purchasing.
The FDA found, however, that there is "no science-based reason" for having to label cloned foods.
