Cloned Food Labeling Act

Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) has introduced the Cloned Food Labeling Act (S. 414), which requires the FDA and the Department of Agriculture to mandate that all food that comes from cloned animals be labeled: THIS PRODUCT IS FROM A CLONED ANIMAL OR ITS PROGENY.

In introducing the bill, Sen. Mikulaski said, “I am strongly opposed to the FDA approving meat and milk products from cloned animals for human consumption. No one needs cloned milk and meat. Most Americans actively oppose it…The American people don't want this. They find it repugnant! Gallup Polls report over 60 percent of Americans think it is immoral to clone animals…”
