EU Rejects Cloned "Food" Animals

From American Anti-Vivisection Society (AAVS)

Earlier this month (May 2010), an European Union Parliamentary Committee rejected a plan to allow food from cloned animals and their offspring into the food industry.

With a vote of 42 for and 2 against, the Environment Committee sent a strong message that this use of technology is unwelcome. Bert Staes, a Green MEP, stated, “Cloning causes unnecessary harm to animals, while its long term health risks have not been sufficiently assessed.”
