European Lawmakers Are Firmly Opposed To Marketing Food Products From Cloned Animals

July 8, 2010: 03:09 AM EST
The European Parliament is not backing down from its opposition to meat and milk products from cloned animals. On July 7 it voted to exclude such food from a draft European Union regulation on novel foods. The legislators also asked for a moratorium on sales of food derived from cloning. The vote is a strong signal to the European Commission and EU member states who want to regulate the sale of "novel foods," but have not taken a firm stand on cloned animal food products. A complete ban on cloned animal food would put the EU into trade conflicts with less restrictive countries, especially the U.S. So-called nanofoods are also a bone of contention. The Parliament asked for a moratorium on their use until they could be proven safe.
