If FDA thinks food from cloned livestock is safe, why does FDA continue to recommend that food from sheep clones be kept out of the food supply?
At this time, the agency does not have sufficient information to make a decision on food consumption risks from clones of species other than cattle, swine, and goats. Although we have no specific concerns related to sheep or other species, because of the uncertainty we continue to recommend that edible products from cloned sheep or other species not be introduced into the human food supply.
- Now that FDA has concluded that food from clones from specified species and from clone progeny is as safe as food from conventionally-bred species, is FDA lifting the voluntary moratorium?
- If there are no long term studies on the consumption of food from clones, why is FDA concluding that it is safe to consume these cloned animals and their offspring?
- If FDA thinks food from cloned livestock is safe, why does FDA continue to recommend that food from sheep clones be kept out of the food supply?
