Why does the FDA not require labeling of food derived from cloned animals?
Based on their report, the FDA concluded there is no difference between food produced from animals bred conventionally or those who were cloned and, therefore, decided no labeling was needed. Their “no-labeling required” stance is identical to their stance on genetically engineered foods. For example, any food labels that claim that the food has not been genetically engineered must also include a statement that no difference has been found between non-genetically engineered food or from that which has been genetically engineered. A similar qualifying statement is expected to be required for any product that makes a “not cloned” claim.
