ABSTRACT
The article discusses the labeling of food and products that come from cloned animals. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated that meat and milk products from cloned animals are safe for consumption. Some consumer groups have proposed that food products from non-cloned animals contain labels identifying them as such. Cloning companies have protested labeling products from cloned animals, noting that food products from conventional farm animals do not include labels with information on the animals' breeding.
