Mmm. A clone should have the exact same DNA as its parent. So if the parent was safe for human consumption, the clone should be as well? Right?
In Europe, special authorization is required to offer the products of a cloned animal for human consumption. Curiously, there is no restriction for the offspring of the animal. So beef from a direct clone is banned, but not its offspring.
This apparently seemed like a contradiction to the European Commission, because they have announced a consultation on the topic. A proposal would place a temporary ban on cloning of food animals.
Consultation on food from cloned animals tells that the proposal would approve the use of cloning for food production in Europe, but temporarily ban food directly from the clones. It is to be debated on whether food from the offspring would be offered for sale, but it must be labeled for consumers.
What are attitudes to clone food in the US? tells the FDA has determined that food form clones is safe for human consumption. Yet the FDA is still requesting a moratorium on direct food consumption from clones. The FDA is not requiring labeling on the food from clones.
