Yesterday the U.S Food and Drug Administration declared that food from cloned animals and their progeny is safe to eat. This decision clears the way for milk and meat derived from genetic copies of prized dairy cows, steers and hogs to be sold at the grocery store.
Farmers claim this will improve the quality of meat in the supermarket. Presumably it will also make more money for the agricultural industy.
Consumer groups are outraged. They claim the science remains inadequate and that many consumers oppose cloning for religious or ethical reasons. They also want a delay until further studies are completed.
Are you in favour of cloned foods being sold in supermarkets?
