Let Them Eat Clones -- Take Two 

A Freedom of Information Act request from the Center for Food Safety together with several other groups has turned up a report commissioned by the FDA descriptively titled “Focus Groups on the Public’s Perception on the Health Risk Associated with Products from Animal Clones”.

Not surprisingly, more than half of the participants stated that they would not want to eat food derived from cloned animals, and all of the parents surveyed said thay would not give such food to their children.

Perhaps surprisingly, the FDA commissioned the report well before it issued its risk assessment approving food from cloned animals and their offspring for human consumption. No labeling or tracking required.

For more about the FDA's decision, see our previous blog posting.
