Industry groups support FDA findings on animal clones
Various industry groups have supported the findings of
the US Food and Drug Administration, which has reported that meat from cloned
animals is safe to eat.
The American Meat
says â€œconsumers should be reassured that the FDA
risk assessment on animal
cloning, like other studies that have preceded it, affirms the safety of food
products derived from animal clones and their offspring.â€
The AMI does, however, recognise that some consumers have concerns about
food from cloned animals, and has urged the government to â€œassist consumers in
understanding what cloning is, and what it is not, so that overall consumer
confidence in the food supply is maintained.â€
â€œIt is also important to stress that FDA is just beginning a dialogue with
the public on this matter and a voluntary moratorium on the sale of meat from
cloned animals remains in place,â€ the organisation said in a statement.
