    U.S. To Approve Cloned Food

    US to approve cloned food

    The United States Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve human consumption of cloned animals within days.

    Texas biotechnology company ViaGen clones several hundred animals a year, including pigs, horses and cattle.

    ViaGen policy director Leah Wilkinson says there's currently no requirement to label products as being from cloned animals.

    "In the future when FDA releases their final risk assessment that says these products are safe, we see that that voluntary moratorium will be lifted and with the value of a cloned animal it's in their genetic reproductive capabilities, so it will be the offspring of those cloned animals that will be going into the food supply here in the US," she says.
