FDA receives 130,000 comments opposing food from clones

A coalition of consumer, environmental, and animal welfare organizations Thursday submitted to the Food and Drug Administration more than 130,000 comments from consumers opposing the agency's proposed plan to introduce food from cloned animals into the U.S. food supply.

The Center for Food Safety, Consumers Union, Food and Water Watch, The Humane Society of the United States, the American Anti-Vivisection Society, the Consumer Federation of America and the Organic Consumers Association joined together to send a strong, unified message to the FDA that the public opposes the introduction of cloned animals in food.
