In 2008, the FDA decided it was okay to let cloned animals, and their offspring, into our food supply. Despite evidence many campaigners viewed as flawed, the FDA insisted food from cloned animals was safe for human consumption. It also insisted that based on its’ safety, labelling indicating food came from those animals, was not necessary. After polls showed about 2/3 of Americans opposed cloning animals for food, the FDA imposed a voluntary ban on their use, but not use of their offspring. On this episode, we’re going to hear from Nina Mak, Research Analyst with the American Anti-Vivisection Society. Please tune in, and hear about the issues surrounding cloning that include: ethics, animal welfare, and food safety.
